Today Intel announced the “first converged HPC and Big Data plaform” with the new Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre. Paired with Chroma storage management tools from Whamcloud as well as a new adaptor for the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop, the new offering provides enterprise-class reliability combined with HPC performance for Big Data applications.
Enterprise users are looking for cost-effective and scalable tools to efficiently manage and quickly access large volumes of data to turn valuable information into actionable insight,” said Boyd Davis, vice president and general manager of Intel’s Datacenter Software Division. “The addition of the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre to our big data software portfolio will help make it easier and more affordable for businesses to move, store and process data quickly and efficiently.”
When paired with the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop, the Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre software allows Hadoop to be run on top of Lustre, significantly improving speed in which data can be accessed and analyzed. This allows users to access data files directly from the global file system at faster rates and speeds up analytics time, providing more productive use of storage assets as well as simpler storage management.
The Intel Enterprise Edition for Lustre will be available in early in the third quarter of this year. Read the Full Story.
