Big Data: It’s All About Exploration

Categories: Enterprise Data Hub Partners


It’s a thrilling week for HP as we invade Las Vegas for our biggest customer event of the year: The 2014 HP Discover Conference, June 10-12. “Discover” just happens to be a fitting word for an exciting new solution we’re launching at this year’s event: The new HP Converged Infrastructure Reference Architecture on Cloudera’s Enterprise 5 with HP Proliant DL Servers.

We live in an age of the “Data Deluge.” Enterprises today are collecting and generating more complex, structured, and unstructured data than ever before. Industry analysts estimates tell us that 11 million instant messages, 698,000 Google searches and 168 million and emails are generated every 60 seconds. Business leaders are asking, “How do I explore and leverage my data to make it matter? ”We think the answer begins with HP and Cloudera. Cloudera is the leader in enterprise data management powered by Apache Hadoop. It is also the leading open source distribution of Hadoop, offering customers a powerful suite of system and data management software, specifically built for the demands of the enterprise.

Today, HP is announcing with Cloudera, a new HP Converged Infrastructure Reference Architecture based on Cloudera Enterprise 5, HP’s industry compute powerhouse HP ProLiant DL360 and DL380 Gen8 Servers.

This jointly engineered solution will reduce overall deployment and configuration complexity as well as increased performance and ease of management. These new, flexible configurations are based on Cloudera’s latest CDH 5.0.

These pre-tested, purpose built solutions combine our server workhorse with the HP SmartArray P420i controller which provides an increase in I/O throughput resulting in performance increases for I/O bound Hadoop workloads.

And with HP Insight Cluster Management Utility (CMU) our clients will have at their fingertips the most efficient hyper-scale cluster lifecycle management framework and suite of tools for large Linux clusters.

In addition, Cloudera brings its impressive enterprise data hub, Cloudera Enterprise, a powerful set of self-service BI, and security solutions as well as an advanced analytics engine, which enables infinite possibilities for exploring multi-structured data.

The end results for this deep engineering collaboration will result in faster decision making decision-making, and simplified, accelerated, cost effective Hadoop deployments
