HP and Cloudera team up on pre-integrated Hadoop clusters

HP and Cloudera are preparing to launch pre-integrated hardware clusters loaded with Apache Hadoop, the popular open-source cluster-computing platform that turns many commodity servers into one powerful computing environment.

Palo Alto, California-based Cloudera offers one of the most popular Hadoop distributions for enterprises.

Tim Stevens, VP of business and corporate development at Cloudera, said the agreement between the two companies was primarily about simplifying big-data processing and analytics on Hadoop.

“With HP reselling the Cloudera Enterprise platform, together we provide end users with a comprehensive big data analytics solution for data integration, analysis and visualization, built natively on open source Apache Hadoop,” he said.

The pre-integrated hardware-software solution – called HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop-Cloudera – is part of the partnership the two companies announced Thursday. Under the agreement, HP will also provide reference architecture for building compute clusters for Cloudera’s Hadoop distribution, based on open standards.

AppSystem for Hadoop consists of an 18-node cluster of HP’s latest ProLiant Gen8 DL380 servers and HP networking gear, all managed through the HP Insight Cluster Management software.

The reference architecture is available now, while the AppSystem is expected to be on the market in late 2012, HP said.

The solutions include HP’s Cluster Manager Utility Software.

HP announced major support for Hadoop at its Discover conference in Las Vegas in June. At the event, the company announced the AppSystem architecture for Hadoop and added consulting services for customers that want to implement the open-source platform.

The latest release of HP-owned data-analytics platform Vertica will also integrate with Hadoop, the company said in June.

  • Do Industry Standards Hold Back Data Centre Innovation?

    Thu, 11 Jun 2015 14:00:00

    Upgrading legacy data centres to handle ever-increasing social media, mobile, big data and Cloud workloads requires significant investment. Yet over 70% of managers are being asked to deliver future-ready infrastructure with reduced budgets. But what if you could square the circle: optimise your centre’s design beyond industry standards by incorporating the latest innovations, while achieving a significant increase in efficiency and still maintaining the required availability?

  • The CFD Myth – Why There Are No Real-Time Computational Fluid Dynamics?

    Wed, 20 May 2015 14:00:00

    The rise of processing power and steady development of supercomputers have allowed Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to grow out of all recognition. But how has this affected the Data Center market – particularly in respect to cooling systems? The ideal DCIM system offers CFD capability as part of its core solution (rather than as an external application), fed by real-time monitoring information to allow for continuous improvements and validation of your cooling strategy and air handling choices. Join DCIM expert Philippe Heim and leading heat transfer authority Remi Duquette for this free webinar, as they discuss: •Benefits of a single data model for asset management •Challenges of real-time monitoring •Some of the issues in CFD simulation, and possible solutions •How CFD can have a direct, positive impact on your bottom line Note: All attendees will have access to a free copy of the latest Siemens White Paper: "Using CFD for Optimal Thermal Management and Cooling Design in Data Centers".
