HP Mates Autonomy and Vertica

Autonomy’s new owner announced its first real-time Autonomy software, called Autonomy IDOL 10

HP seared its brand on Autonomy's rump Tuesday.

Autonomy's the unpopular, overpriced British acquisition HP announced on August 18, the one that contributed to the earthquake-like shudder that went through its stock and led to the ouster of its then CEO Leo Apotheker.

Autonomy's new owner announced its first real-time Autonomy software, called Autonomy IDOL 10, available December 1, a surprisingly short eight weeks after the deal closed. It's reportedly capable of integrating - as HP suggested it would be - with HP's more conventional Vertica acquisition done in March. Together they're supposed to handle 100% of a company's data.

Of course it'd not like the stuff is integrated with a more widely used RDBMS. However, IDOL 10 is supposed to provide a single processing layer so organizations can extract meaning and act on all forms of information, including audio, video, social media, e-mail and web content, as well as structured data such as customer transaction logs and machine-based sensor data.

The combined widgetry, called the HP Next Generation Information Platform, should make all forms of structured and unstructured data searchable by looking for context, not keywords, once it becomes available at the end of January.

There are also three new Autonomy appliances powered by IDOL for archiving, eDiscovery and enterprise search that are reportedly tuned for HP ProLiant servers and storage - or soon will be. Otherwise they'll run on anybody's x86 infrastructure. They're due in Q1.

Autonomy has never had hardware access before and HP is hinting that it could turn up in its PCs and printers.

HP's newly minted EVP of information management Mike Lynch, the now very rich former CEO of Autonomy, said in a canned statement from Vienna that "For far too long, organizations have confined structured data to relational databases and unstructured data to simplistic keyword matching technologies. IDOL 10 brings these worlds together, allowing organizations to automatically process, understand and act on 100% of their data in real-time. The results will be dramatic, as businesses can develop entirely new applications that explore the richness and color of human information that live in unstructured, semi-structured and structured forms."

Vertica will be kicking in its data warehouse analysis of structured data to be used on unstructured data such as Twitter's. HP says it has been enhanced with geospatial, event-series pattern matching, event-series joins and advanced aggregate statistical and regression analytics.

Autonomy, whose strength has been in text, audio and video, has been given hooks into Vertica's columns under a single NoSQL interface.

The combo is supposed to solve problems too big for Hadoop or MapReduce.

There may be other packages including HP Big Data Solutions, HP Social Media Solutions, HP Risk Management Solutions, HP Cloud Solutions and HP Mobility Solutions.

The data won't have to be copied; it can stay where it is, reducing storage costs and risky transfers thanks to a "manage-in-place" technology that indexes all forms of data.

Existing Autonomy users will reportedly have to pay extra for the new Vertica functionality.

HP reportedly means to cloud-ify the stuff on its promised public cloud.
