IBM System x Reference Architecture for Hadoop: InfoSphere BigInsights combines the System x3650 M4 BD server with IBM InfoSphere BigInsights, a distribution of Apache Hadoop featuring value-added IBM capabilities, for analysis of both unstructured and structured data. With enhanced performance, storage and memory capacity, you can get faster insight from analysis of large scale data.
IBM System x Reference Architecture for Hadoop: MapR is engineered to run the latest MapR Edition Apache Hadoop distribution for a simple, reliable big data solution. Built on the System x3650 M4 BD server, this solution simplifies your implementation by combining the ease of use of MapR Hadoop with the performance and reliability of IBM x86 servers.
IBM System x Reference Architecture for Hadoop: Cloudera delivers Cloudera certified reference architectures for Apache Hadoop environments based on CDH, Cloudera’s Hadoop distribution. This tested configuration performs complex analytics on unstructured data leveraging the performance of the System x3650 M4 BD server.
IBM System x Reference Architecture for InfoSphere Streams performs complex, real-time analytics on unstructured data-in-motion so you can run large-scale, distributed analytics jobs on clusters of cost-effective, high performance System x servers. The hardware platform is available pre-integrated from IBM.
IBM x86 Reference Architecture for SAS Visual Analytics is designed to offer complex in-memory analytics processing and is integrated with Hadoop on the latest generation of IBM x86 servers for fast visualization of data. Once the data has been loaded into the IBM x86 server, business level users can create on-the-fly data calculations, drill down and explore data without help from IT. The hardware platform is available pre-integrated from IBM.
