A Startup called BigBoards has launched a fascinating new product called the HEX, a desktop Hadoop cluster for learning Big Data analytics.
Your Hex is a portable cluster that sits on your desk! But beware: its sleek design hides a full-blown data center – right at your fingertips! Fully pre-assembled by us, so you can concentrate not on the hardware but on your data.
The BigBoards Hex contains 6 nodes in total, interconnected by an ethernet switch! Each node is a mobile computer on its own. One node is appointed master to host the BigBoards tools and to act as bridge to the exterior world. As you can see by the table below, that is a lot of power at your fingertips!
