Today Cray announced a new Hadoop solution that combines supercomputing technologies with an “enterprise-strength” approach to Big Data analytics. Available later this month, Cray cluster supercomputers for Hadoop will pair Cray CS300 systems with the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop.
More and more organizations are expanding their usage of Hadoop software beyond just basic storage and reporting. But while they’re developing increasingly complex algorithms and becoming more dependent on getting value out of Hadoop systems, they are also pushing the limits of their architectures,” said Bill Blake, senior vice president and CTO of Cray. “We are combining the supercomputing technologies of the Cray CS300 series with the performance and security of the Intel Distribution to provide customers with a turnkey, reliable Hadoop solution that is purpose-built for high-value Hadoop environments. Organizations can now focus on scaling their use of platform-independent Hadoop software, while gaining the benefits of important underlying architectural advantages from Cray and Intel.”
