Cloudera and SGI
Organizations increasingly recognize the potential of Big Data to transform their business—improving customer retention and acquisition, increasing operational efficiencies, enabling better products and service delivery, and generating new business insights. An analytics-ready data management platform is critical to take full advantage of Big Data.
Historically utilized for complex, computationally intensive problems, High Performance Computing (HPC) is now being applied to Big Data analytics. SGI has been a driving force in HPC for nearly two decades and drawing upon vast expertise in clustered computing, was at the forefront of Apache™ Hadoop® with installations currently totaling tens of thousands nodes.
Applying HPC Leadership to Big Data Analytics
The potential gains surrounding Big Data are far reaching and also present new challenges: how to derive value at greater speed, scale, and efficiency. SGI InfiniteData Cluster with Cloudera is designed to meet this challenge and enables business and government agencies perform Big Data analytics with faster, greater insight and at lower cost.
