Expanding its Big Data portfolio, Cisco announced a fully integrated end-to-end hardware and software infrastructure for enterprise Hadoop deployments in partnership with Greenplum, a division of EMC, that delivers industry-leading performance, scalability, advanced management capabilities and enterprise-class service and support. This solution consists of Cisco UCS 6200 Series Fabric Interconnects, Cisco UCS C-Series rack mount servers and Greenplum MR. Greeplum MR is based on the MapR M5 distribution, a completely re-engineered implementation of the Apache Hadoop stack with 100 percent compatibility. Cisco UCS is the exclusive integrated platform for Greeplum MR that can significantly reduce time-to-value and the operating expenses associated with Hadoop implementations.
Hadoop implementations can present a number of challenges to enterprise environments, many of these arise from the dichotomy between the introduction of innovative new technology and the enterprise-class performance, reliability, and support demanded by mission-critical systems. The collaboration between Cisco and Greenplum is specifically designed to provide a solution to these challenges. The joint solution delivers radically simplified deployment and management, high availability, excellent performance, exceptional scalability, and world-class service and support from long-time collaborators Cisco and EMC.
This solution can also connect, across the same management plane, to other Cisco UCS deployments running enterprise applications, thereby radically simplifying data center management and connectivity.
The configuration starts in a single rack with the ability to extend into multiple racks.
