Cloud HPC: Elastic MapReduce in the Automotive Industry

In this blog post, Rinivasan Sundara Ragan takes a look at how the value of Cloud computing to the automotive enterprise is its ability to perform processing of large amounts of information using highly parallel processes on scalable computing infrastructure.

Using Amazon Elastic MapReduce, you can instantly provision as much or as little capacity as you like to perform data-intensive tasks for applications such as web indexing, data mining, log file analysis, data warehousing, machine learning, financial analysis, scientific simulation, and bioinformatics research.

Ragan goes on to cite the following computational tasks as prime candidates for Amazon Elastic MapReduce: Vehicle Model and Option Validation, Vehicle Mass Analysis, Emission Reporting, Recyclability and Recoverability, and Warranty Claim Analysis. Full Story
