First ARM Cortex- A57-Based Hadoop Demonstration Achieved on AMD Opteron A멣eries Platform

     Hadoop/AMD Opte짯ron A멣eries Pro짯ces짯sor com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on is desi짯gned for increased plat짯form agi짯li짯ty and effi짯ci짯en짯cy for data manage짯ment and ana짯ly짯sis  

     Gro짯wing 64-bit ARM ser짯ver soft짯ware eco짯sys짯tem now boasts Hadoop on Java run짯ning on two Linux dis짯tri짯bu짯ti짯ons

SAN FRANCISCO Sept. 30, 2014 AMD (NYSE: AMD) today will make the first public demons짯tra짯ti짯on of Apa짯che꽓 Hadoop짰 run짯ning on an ARM짰 Cortex짰-A57-based AMD Opte짯ron꽓 A멣eries processor.In a tech짯ni짯cal ses짯si짯on at the JavaO짯ne꽓 con짯fe짯rence to be deli짯ver짯ed this after짯noon by AMD cor짯po짯ra짯te fel짯low Leen짯dert van Doorn, the com짯pa짯ny will show how the expan짯ding AMD Opte짯ron A멣eries ser짯ver soft짯ware eco짯sys짯tem now includes Hadoop, the Java-based frame짯work for sto짯rage and lar짯ge-sca짯le data pro짯ces짯sing. In addi짯ti짯on, Hen짯rik Stahl, vice pre짯si짯dent, Java pro짯duct manage짯ment and Inter짯net of Things at Ora짯cle, will join van Doorn on stage to dis짯cuss Oracle셲 sup짯port for AMD셲 64-bit ARM ser짯ver architecture.

Hadoop, a dis짯tri짯bu짯ted pro짯ces짯sing tech짯no짯lo짯gy used pri짯ma짯ri짯ly for big data ana짯ly짯sis, is a rapidly expan짯ding mar짯ket expec짯ted to reach upward of $50 bil짯li짯on by 2020.[i] The com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on of 64-bit ARM-based ser짯vers and Hadoop is desi짯gned to acce짯le짯ra짯te the chan짯ging eco짯no짯mics of lar짯ge-sca짯le com짯pu짯ting by enab짯ling dis짯tri짯bu짯ted pro짯ces짯sing across clus짯ters of ARM-based ser짯vers. Run짯ning on the recent짯ly announ짯ced AMD Opte짯ron꽓 A1100 deve짯lo짯p짯mentplat짯form, the demons짯tra짯ti짯on will fea짯ture Apa짯che Hadoop run짯ning on the Ora짯cle JDK.  Leen짯dert will also show mul짯ti짯ple nodes run짯ning the same demons짯tra짯ti짯on using Linux envi짯ron짯ments based on Fedo짯ra tech짯no짯lo짯gy from the Red Hat-spon짯so짯red Fedo짯ra com짯mu짯ni짯ty and the com짯mu짯ni짯ty sup짯port짯ed Open짯SU짯SE Project.

This demons짯tra짯ti짯on show짯ca짯ses AMD셲 lea짯der짯ship in the deve짯lo짯p짯ment of a robust, stan짯dards-based eco짯sys짯tem for ARM ser짯vers, said van Doorn. 쏶er짯vers powered by AMD Opte짯ron A멣eries pro짯ces짯sors are well-sui짯ted for Hadoop, offe짯ring an effi짯ci짯ent sca짯le-out com짯pu짯te plat짯form that can also dou짯ble as an eco짯no짯mic짯al per짯sis짯tent sto짯rage platform.

AMD con짯ti짯nues to dri짯ve inno짯va짯ti짯on in the ser짯ver eco짯sys짯tem by enab짯ling vir짯tual짯ly seam짯less soft짯ware and tools inte짯gra짯ti짯on across both the x86 and ARM archi짯tec짯tu짯re envi짯ron짯ments. Through its col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with part짯ners such as ARM, Lin짯a짯ro, Ora짯cle, Red Hat and SUSE, AMD is pro짯vi짯ding users access to a com짯ple짯te deve짯lo짯p짯ment envi짯ron짯ment for ARM based appli짯ca짯ti짯ons and cross-plat짯form support.
