AMD Improves Yield Predictions with Cloudera-Powered Engineering Data Warehouse

AMD decided to migrate from a relational database management system (RDBMS) to an Apache Hadoop- powered Cloudera system that can process and store more detailed and historical data at low cost.

AMD's decision to move from an RDBMS to a Hadoop platform that uses Cloudera on Dell servers powered by AMD Opteron processors has resulted in orders of magnitude performance improvement, in terms of both data loads and analytics, including:

  • Query response times reduced by 75% to 98% over larger volumes of data
  • Capturing 90%+ of available data elements, vs. 30% before
  • Ability to load & keep 1.5+ years’ historical data (vs. 3-4 months before)
  • Lower TCO
