Pivotal today announced the availability of the Pivotal™ Big Data Suite, an annual subscription based software, support, and maintenance package that bundles Pivotal Greenplum Database, Pivotal GemFire, Pivotal SQLFire, Pivotal GemFire XD, Pivotal HAWQ, and Pivotal HD into a flexible pool of big and fast data products for customers. Pivotal Big Data Suite is available today and is available through an aggressively priced subscription model based on the number of cores on two and three year terms.

The merging of traditional and next-generation data infrastructure technologies is defined as a "Business Data Lake" - a business priority for CIOs in 2014 and beyond and something that can be uniquely delivered by a company like Pivotal with broad data and analytics expertise. The Pivotal Big Data Suite fills a much-needed gap in the market, helping enterprise companies to capitalize on explosive data growth by offering a multi-faceted data portfolio with a "use it as you need it" pricing model. This enables organizations to flexibly move their investment from one technology to another within the suite, at any time. Per core pricing ensures that data that is simply being stored is not taxed, which will be important as enterprises seek to consolidate more and more information into a Business Data Lake. With the Pivotal Big Data Suite, data driven companies now have the ability to store everything, analyze anything and build the right thing without fear or penalty when making data technology investment decisions.

Unlimited, Fully Supported Apache Hadoop
In the face of today's corporate mandate to manage, store and analyze big data, Hadoop has emerged as a leading tool used increasingly by enterprises around the world as the core of their data management solution. With the rapid proliferation of Hadoop-based data storage requirements, traditional software consumption models are significant, cost-prohibitive obstacles to enterprise success in big data. Only Pivotal offers an unlimited subscription to Pivotal HD, today's leading enterprise Hadoop distribution. With the Pivotal Big Data Suite, unlimited Pivotal HD empowers enterprises to stretch their Business Data Lakes to store everything and analyze anything, without fear of runaway license and support costs.

The Pivotal Big Data Suite ties all of the company's leading data technologies together, enabling customers to leverage any one, whenever and wherever they need it. Existing Pivotal Greenplum Database customers can continue to leverage the powerful analytical data capabilities they love, while, at the same time, allow them to extend the use of the Pivotal data portfolio: everything from real time in-memory capabilities via Pivotal GemFire®, Pivotal SQLFire to Pivotal GemFire XD to lightning-fast queries via Pivotal HAWQ™ over Pivotal HD. Unified, simplified, and flexible licensing gives organizations the agility to use the technology that is right for their business.

Enabling the Data Driven Enterprise and Leveraging Cloud Computing

Data sits at the center of any business, the lens through which modern disruptors unearth answers to their most important business questions and the basis for the creation of a new class of applications that better serve the needs of customers. In addition to the Pivotal Big Data Suite, Pivotal leverages Pivotal One, the world's first comprehensive multi-cloud enterprise platform-as-a-service, and their agile development unit, Pivotal Labs, to deliver the most robust and compelling offering for customers to transform their business  and find value in today's era of the cloud.
