In the news this week: chip vendors make acquisitions and introduce new AI products, an analytic database provider releases an enhanced solution, and more.
Keeping pace with news and developments in the real-time analytics market can be a daunting task. We want to help by providing a summary of some of the items our staff came across each week. Here is a short list of some news from this week:
NVIDIA introduced NVIDIA DRIVE AGX Orin™, a highly advanced software-defined platform for autonomous vehicles and robots. The platform is powered by a new system-on-a-chip (SoC) called Orin, which consists of 17 billion transistors and is the result of four years of R&D investment. The Orin SoC integrates NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU architecture and Arm Hercules CPU cores, as well as new deep learning and computer vision accelerators that, in aggregate, deliver 200 trillion operations per second—nearly 7x the performance of NVIDIA’s previous generation Xavier SoC.
Exasol, the analytics database provider, launched version 6.2 of its analytics database to further strengthen performance, enable better integration, revamp its enterprise features, and enhance data science capabilities. Exasol also launched a cloud deployment and a reconfiguration wizard to ease the deployment, configuration, and operation of the Exasol analytics database in AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
Boomi™, a Dell Technologies business™, announced it has entered into a definitive agreement under which Boomi will acquire Unifi Software. Unifi Software provides intelligent data discovery, catalog, and preparation offerings built on a cloud technology stack. The acquisition expands Boomi’s integration and data management platform to accelerate successful, data-driven insights for customers.
Intel Corporation announced that it has acquired Habana Labs, an Israel-based developer of programmable deep learning accelerators for the data center for approximately $2 billion. The combination strengthens Intel’s artificial intelligence (AI) portfolio and accelerates its efforts in the nascent, fast-growing AI silicon market, which Intel expects to be greater than $25 billion by 2024.
