Unlocking Business Value and Insights
As enterprises move into the Big Data era, IT organizations need to deliver the right infrastructure for helping their businesses find new insights from a growing sea of data. Every day, companies amass tera-and-petabytes of data about their customers, products, and operations that are a goldmine of opportunities and potential success. Until recently, unlocking this information in a timely manner has been cost prohibitive or downright technically impossible.
Making the Impossible, Possible
With clusters of Calxeda EnergyCore-based servers, you can efficiently store all of your organizations legacy data along with unstructured data (generated by social media, video, or machine logs) in a single platform. With server hardware powered by Calxeda, enterprises now have a fault-resilient, highly scalable, data warehousing solution for only 10% the energy of your traditional servers.
By breaking massive data sets into smaller chunks, each node also provides the ability to process and analyze its data in both real-time and offline (batch) operations. With Calxeda’s patent-pending fabric technology, you can add 10x the compute performance in the same rack space and power envelope. More compute means faster time to insight and faster time to answers!
Putting it All Together
Pioneered by some of the world’s largest Internet companies, open-source software such as Hadoop and Cassandra have taken center stage in ushering in the unstructured Big Data era. Depending on your requirements, one may be a better fit than the other. Regardless of the software solution you ultimately choose, finding the balanced hardware and software will provide a more efficient strategy at growing your infrastructure to meet the pace of data growth.
