SPRINGFIELD, Va., April 17, 2013 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] has released an upgrade of its Twister Data Framework software, which helps customers make better decisions by analyzing large amounts of data. Customers using version 3.7.4 can quickly and reliably access and analyze data in the cloud or elsewhere from anywhere on their network.

"Finding decision-quality information in a massive amount of data is the 'Big Data' challenge that all of our customers face," said Jonathan Moneymaker, Boeing director of the Intelligence Systems Group. "This latest Twister upgrade ensures that our customers continue to have an information advantage that incorporates the latest features of the rapidly evolving cloud environment."

Twister Data Framework's new features include:

  • Support for variable workloads through elastic computing and load-balancing to improve software performance in the cloud and across clustered file systems
  • Extended open-source software support to make better use of third-party technologies for easier integration in the customer environment
  • A reporting capability that alerts system administrators to performance bottlenecks by capturing node health events.
