Supermicro is introducing its latest Hadoop-optimized systems at the Strata Conference, February 26-28, including the ultra-efficient, 4U FatTwin SuperServer F617H6-FTL+ systems which achieve up to 20% less power consumption compared to industry standard 1U Hadoop systems.  Similar to the Supermicro 1U standalone version that supports 12+2 drives (SKU# SYS-6017R-73HDP+), this 4U supports four nodes with twelve 3.5-inch hard drives plus two 2.5-inch drives each.  Featuring front-side I/O and redundant Platinum level (94%+) power supplies, this latest FatTwin system delivers unsurpassed system power efficiency and the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) available.

"Supermicro develops enterprise-class server and storage solutions based on Intel's processor and chipset technologies, and this alliance addresses the growing Big Data challenge," said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro.  "We simplify the deployment of Big Data solutions by offering turn-key compute and storage clusters designed and optimized specifically for the Hadoop framework.  Our latest Hadoop-optimized system designs significantly reduce overall power consumption to help protect the environment and save customers money on their energy bills."

"Enterprises looking to deploy big data applications quickly need a platform that delivers performance, reliability, and ease of deployment," said Boyd Davis, VP and General Manager of the Datacenter Software Division of Intel.  "The Supermicro solutions for big data optimized with the Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software deliver hardware-enhanced performance and security along with the simplicity of an integrated solution."

Perfect for high-capacity backend storage, Supermicro's new SuperChassis 847D (Server SKU# SSG-6047R-E1R72L) supports an industry-leading 72 external, hot-swappable 3.5-inch SAS2 or SATA3 hard drives in 4U. The SC847D supports well over 200TB of storage capacity and also features two 2.5-inch internal drive trays for convenient operating system (OS) installation on either solid-state drive (SSD) or hard disk drive (HDD) devices.  This incredible new storage server chassis doubles the hot-swap storage density and still maintains high serviceability with all of the hot-swap drives being easily accessible from the front or back side without having to move the system.  The SC847D comes standard with redundant Platinum level power supplies to provide the best reliability and power efficiency available.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.
