      > data analytics on commodity hardware


      When you saying this please don't forget about that IQ licensing by CPU (Cores).

      Hello, Mikhail,

      thank you for your comment.

      Yes, you are right - the SAP Sybase IQ can be licensed by CPU (Cores) or even bundled as analytics engine into packages of SAP BusinessObjects BI Analytics Editions. But the main point here is that you don't need to use very expensive dedicated hardware from selected vendors to get the real power from SAP Sybase IQ and create a really good data analytics foundation.

      Ok, Donatas I understand this message.

      Reusing Current software - it's good. We live long time on 2 Xeon CPUs (total - 8 cores) - for 500 reporter user per day.  Now we going to build multiplex.

      Simple thing that you keep  in mind if you(as a client) wanna get maximum efficiency for your investments in IQ (performance per CPU)  so of course you must using modern hardware (last CPU models, fast network, storages). Because hardware cost always less that licenses.
