Industries that recognize the value and regularly rely on tape storage include education, federal and state government, finance, life sciences, media and entertainment, oil and gas exploration, and Web 2.0, among others.”
We caught up with Mike Boros, Hadoop Product Manager at Cray, to learn about the company’s Big Data solutions. “I think you’ll see Cray continue to focus on Big & Fast, vs. just Big Data.

DK Panda from Ohio State University presented this talk at the Stanford HPC & Exascale Conference. “As InfiniBand is getting used in scientific computing environments, there is a big demand to harness its benefits for enterprise environments for handling big data and analytics. This talk will focus on high-performance and scalable designs of Hadoop using native RDMA support of InfiniBand and RoCE.”
