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.”
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.
In this new insideBIGDATA Guide to Retail, the goal is directed toward line of business leaders in conjunction with enterprise technologists with a focus on the above opportunities for retailers and how Dell can help them get started. The guide also will serve as a resource for retailers that are farther along the big data path and have more advanced technology requirements.
This article is the first in a series that explores a high-level view of how the retail industry has been influenced by big data technologies.
“The Seagate 1200.2 SSD family includes the next-generation of high-capacity, high-performance SAS SSDs designed with multiple endurance offerings optimized for demanding enterprise applications and maximum TCO savings. The 1200.2 SAS SSD family delivers ultra-fast, consistent and easily scalable performance that exceeds 12Gb/s SAS single port bandwidth. By removing the storage bottleneck, it closes the gap between processor and data storage performance and significantly improves overall system and application responsiveness.”
Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the big data analytics and marketing applications company, launched the next-generation Teradata Appliance for Hadoop®, version 5, which is configurable, ready-to-run and offers a choice of the latest version of Hadoop from Hortonworks® (HDP™ 2.3), and for the first time, Cloudera (Cloudera Enterprise 5.4).
