Super Micro Computer is expanding its Hadoop Big Data initiatives with support for the new Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop Software (Intel Distribution). Super Micro's Hadoop-optimized server and storage systems have undergone rigorous testing and validation, the company says.
New Hadoop-optimized systems include the 4U FatTwin SuperServer F617H6-FTL+ systems, which achieve up to 20% less power consumption compared to industry standard 1U Hadoop systems. The 4U supports four nodes with twelve 3.5-inch hard drives plus two 2.5-inch drives each.
The SuperChassis 847D supports 72 external, hot-swappable 3.5-inch SAS2 or SATA3 hard drives in 4U. The SC847D supports well over 200TB of storage capacity and also features two 2.5-inch internal drive trays for convenient OS installation on either solid-state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) devices. The SC847D comes standard with redundant Platinum level power supplies.
