This paper provides guidance, based on extensive lab testing conducted at Intel, to help IT organizations plan an optimized infrastructure for deploying Apache Hadoop*. It includes:
- Best practices for establishing server hardware specifications
- level software guidance regarding the operating system (OS), Java Virtual Machine (JVM), and Hadoop version
- Configuration and tuning recommendations to provide optimized performance with reduced effort
New benchmark test results update this This Configuration and Deployment Guide which explores designing and building a Memcached infrastructure that is scalable, reliable, manageable and secure. Benchmark tests included the latest Intel Atom and Intel Xeon processor-based microservers and dual-socket servers to explore differing business scenarios and tradeoffs for different Service Level Agreement (SLA) requirements and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) objectives.
Solid-state drives (SSD) have rapidly evolved over the last few years, resulting in devices with more space and greater reliability. SSDs are used for caching in data centers and in larger system applications including computing massive data sets (big data: volume, variety, and velocity). This blog shares some features of Intel® SSD, illustrates the potential uses of SSDs in the cloud, and provides some general Linux guidelines to fully utilize Intel SSDs.
