In this new insideBIGDATA Guide to Scientific Research, the goal is to provide a road map for scientific researchers wishing to capitalize on the rapid growth of big data technology for collecting, transforming, analyzing, and visualizing large scientific data sets.

Efficiency: Big Data Meets HPC in Financial Services

Converging High Performance Computing (HPC) and Lustre* parallel file systems with Hadoop’s MapReduce for Big Data analytics can eliminate the need for Hadoop’s infrastructure and speeding up the entire analysis. Convergence is a solution of interest for companies with HPC already in their infrastructure, such as the financial services Industry and other industries adopting high performance data analytics.

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

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.

Hadoop for HPC—It Just Makes Sense

Building out a Hadoop cluster with massive amounts of local storage is a considerably extensive and expensive undertaking, especially when the data already resides in a POSIX compliant Lustre file system. Now companies can adopt analytics written for Hadoop and run them on their HPC clusters.

Nimbix and Mangstor Announce Converged High Performance Platform as a Service

Nimbix and Mangstor announced a joint technology offering designed to accelerate high performance data analysis for seismic processing, bioinformatics, and other big data analytics use cases in the Nimbix Cloud.

Ryft’s Open Platform Supercharges Analytics Performance by Eliminating I/O Bottlenecks

A new IDC Technology Spotlight “Ryft’s Open Platform Aims to Supercharge Analytics Performance by Eliminating I/O Bottlenecks” sponsored by Ryft Systems Inc. examines the issues that are driving organizations to embrace HPDA. The paper looks at the role the new Ryft ONE open platform takes to supercharge performance on even the most challenging analytics workloads.

The Hidden Costs of Open Source

While Linux clusters dominate HPC, there are many issues related to cost and complexity that can make open-source solutions challenging. In addition, determining real costs can be complex because every environment is different, and organizations will assess costs using their own methodologies and based on their own requirements and capabilities.

“And, to me, the point of this talk is that the world is changing. There is money going to be made by the bucketful, and it isn’t going to go to Larry Ellison and his gang. It’s going to go to smart people like you who know how to leverage open-source.”
