Abstract: This document is based off the activities performed for a Request for Proposal (RFP) response conducted by IBM for an IBM client in a Hadoop hardware infrastructure. This document discusses the benefits of an HBA vs a RAID adapter when used in JBOD mode, which is very popular in Hadoop environments. This document is intended for Technical Sellers in the IBM System x community and for end users responsible for architecting servers.
