HPE has announced the acquisition of Ampool, a developer of a data platform designed to deliver a cloud-native, high-performance SQL analytics engine for data engineers and business analysts. Ampool will join the HPE Ezmeral software organization, and will play a pivotal role in accelerating HPE Ezmeral analytics runtime for interactive SQL workloads, helping to improve quality, repeatability, throughput, and time to value for our customers’ AI/ML, analytics and data-intensive workloads.
Ampool has built a scalable, data federation layer combined with a multi-tiered acceleration engine to boost analytical query processing speeds at scale. Founded by Milind Bhandarkar, Ampool brings a team of engineers from Yahoo, LinkedIn, VMware/Pivotal, and Veritas.
HPE GreenLake provides customers with a powerful foundation to drive digital transformation through an elastic as-a-service platform that can run on premises, at the edge, or in a colocation facility. The HPE GreenLake edge to cloud platform combines simplicity and agility with the governance, compliance, and visibility that comes with hybrid IT, and provides a range of cloud services, including HPE Ezmeral Container Platform and HPE Ezmeral ML Ops.
The acquisition builds on this strategy by adding Ampool’s technology components and open source expertise to the Ezmeral portfolio, which will over time turn into a set of SQL acceleration services made available through the HPE GreenLake cloud platform.
