SGI unveils data mining tool

Silicon Graphics is diving deeper into the data warehousing pool with MineSet Version 2.6, the latest version of its flagship product.

    Silicon Graphics is diving deeper into the data warehousing pool with a new version of its data mining tool.

    The Mountain View, California-based firm unveiled today MineSet Version 2.6, the latest version of its flagship product. Enhancements to the tool include support for 32- and 64-bit computing, a new application programming interface for plugging in third party products, support for international character-based languages, and improved analysis functionality.

    It is to begin shipping in October. Starting price for a single server and client license, which includes a training course, is $25,000.

    MineSet is available on all SGI systems running IRIX 6.2 operating systems or higher. Parallelization and 64-bit support require IRIXZ 6.4 or higher.

    For those wanting to try the tool but don't have terabytes of data to mine or the desire to invest $25,000 in an untried product, SGI is offering MineSet Light, a slimmed down version of the tool. It contains all the same features but can only handle a fraction of the load, about 5,000 records. It is priced at $3,000.
