ClouderaHP Vertica Analytics Platform: No Limits, No Compromises
Conceived by legendary database guru Michael Stonebraker, the HP Vertica Analytics Platform was purpose built from the first line of code for Big Data Analytics. Why? Because it was clear that data warehouses and “business-as-usual” practices were limiting technologies, causing businesses to make painful compromises.

The HP Vertica Analytics Platform was consciously designed with speed, scalability, simplicity, and openness at its core and architected to handle analytical workloads via a distributed compressed columnar architecture. HP Vertica provides blazing-fast speed (queries run 50-1,000x faster), petabyte-scale (store 10-30x more data per server), and openness and simplicity (use any BI/ETL tools, Hadoop, etc.) — all at 30% of the cost of traditional data warehouse solutions.

Cresset is a leading provider of computational software tools and consulting services to the life sciences and biotechnology markets. Our primary focus is the comparison of molecular structures and the elucidation of molecular interactions; these are achieved using our unique molecular Field Point technology. Field Points are based on the most likely areas of interaction between e.g. a drug molecule and a target protein: their use enables us to provide detailed analysis of structure-activity relationships as well as very high throughput assessment of likely active molecules via our ligand-based virtual screening platform, FieldScreen.
In drug discovery one of the key advantages of the Field Point approach is that structurally dissimilar molecules can be shown to have very similar molecular fields; we make use of this in our FieldStere product, which enables users to generate novel structures from an existing starting point. The Cresset technologies are all readily accessible through KNIME workflow nodes
