Joseph George from HP presented this talk at the recent HPC User Forum. “This paper describes the HP Big Data Reference Architecture (BDRA) solution and outlines how a modern architectural approach to Hadoop provides the basis for consolidating multiple big data projects while, at the same time, enhancing price/performance, density, and agility. HP BDRA is a modern, flexible architecture for the deployment of big data solutions; it is designed to improve access to big data, rapidly deploy big data solutions, and provide the flexibility needed to optimize the infrastructure in response to the ever-changing requirements in a Hadoop ecosystem.”
