National Instruments launches test and measurement products to handle big data

Infotech Lead Asia: National Instruments has released new versions of their existing test and measurement products to handle big data.

At 10 to 500 times the size of the original options, they have plenty of storage room for even your largest data sets.

According to a SAS survey, just 12 percent of enterprises surveyed are currently executing against a big data strategy in daily operations. Their specific concerns included data quality and accuracy, accessing the right data, reconciling disparate data, lack of organizational view into data, timeliness, compliance, and security.

Tom Bradicich, NI R&D Fellow and resident Big Data Guru at National Instruments, said: “Here at NI, we pride ourselves on staying at the forefront of technology and innovation, so we’ve decided to get ahead of the curve and release huge versions of our products to handle this data.”

For example, one new NI PXI product offers an unprecedented 100-slot, five-deck chassis that allows you to use all 500 modules in the PXI catalog simultaneously. It weighs four tons and measures an impressive 12 feet by 7 feet.

Later in 2013, customers can also expect wheeled versions of products as NI capitalizes on this “mobile” thing that everyone’s talking about.
