Video: Challenging Analytics Architectures from HP

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.”

Enabling Value for Converged Commercial HPC and Big Data Infrastructures through Lustre*

big data infrastructure

A number of industries rely on high-performance computing (HPC) clusters to process massive amounts of data. As these same organizations explore the value of Big Data analytics based on Hadoop, they are realizing the value of converging Hadoop and HPC onto the same cluster rather than scaling out an entirely new Hadoop infrastructure.
