TACC’s Hadoop Cluster Makes Big Data Research More Accessible

Over at the Texas Advanced Computing Center, Aaron Dubrow writes that researchers are using a specialized cluster at TACC to do experimental Hadoop-style studies on a current production system. This system offers researchers a total of 48, eight-processor nodes on TACC’s Longhorn cluster to run Hadoop in a coordinated way with accompanying large-memory processors. A user on the system can request all 48 nodes for a maximum of 96 terabytes (TB) of distributed storage. What’s special about the Longhorn cluster at TACC...
