Lenovo’s Cloudera solution for ThinkServer offers impressive
Hadoop™ cluster performance and terrific value as a complete,
validated solution.
Impressive Performance
Why ThinkServer?
Lenovo’s Cloudera solution for ThinkServer is built on
the newest Cloudera Distribution for Apache™ Hadoop
(CDH™) 5.2. It features three powerful ThinkServer
management nodes, offers expansive scalability with eight
data nodes, and provides an impressive big data solution
as an enterprise data hub, landing zone or data lake.
It’s an ideal choice for commercial Hadoop deployments
for small and medium business or high performance
computing (HPC) workloads.
Select ThinkServer as your Cloudera architecture for its
no-compromises performance and world-class reliability.
ThinkServer RD550 and RD650 servers feature the latest
generation Xeon E5 v3 processors, compared to competing
Cloudera solutions which are based on previous generation
processors. In addition, ThinkServer RD550 and RD650
servers are designed to run continuously at 45 degrees
Celsius (113 degrees Fahrenheit) and meet the rigorous
ASHRAE A4 standard, with no impact on reliability.
This permits greater tolerance in demanding environments
compared to competing choices which are based on the less
rigorous A3 standard. Thinkserver rack servers are based
on open standards and protocols, are easy to service
and are ideal for heterogeneous environments. They feature
extensive redundant components to keep applications
running smoothly without interruption. Coupling these
features, reliability and performance, Lenovo ThinkServer
and Cloudera provide a solution that can scale to service
large enterprise deployments, but can also be implemented
by smaller businesses.
The ThinkServer Cloudera solution is based on three
ThinkServer RD550 servers as management nodes.
These powerful 1U rack servers are configured with
Intel’s newest E5-2600 v3 processors and feature
increased cores, greater cache size, greater I/O
performance and less latency versus previous generation
processors. Cloudera optimizes CDH 5.2 for the latest
Intel E5 architecture, optimizing data processing workloads
at the silicon level for robust security, governance,
data protection and management that small or medium
businesses require. The ThinkServer Cloudera solution
maximizes these technologies to offer a compelling Hadoop
solution for university research deployments, manufacturing,
education or financial industries.
The ThinkServer Cloudera solution is based on eight
ThinkServer RD650 servers as data nodes. These scalable
2U rack servers provide world-class performance, enormous
capacity and innovative hybrid storage choices to meet your
enterprise analytic data management needs. They offer
74.4TB of storage capacity and eight PCIe slots for robust
I/O in a modular chassis design. The ThinkServer RD650
offers versatile storage options, with a choice of 3.5"
and 2.5" SATA or SAS drives, as well as optional enterpriseclass M.2 Solid State Drives (SSD) for secure or diskless
booting. Store any kind of data and analyze it with a wide
array of CDH compute tools like batch processing, interactive
SQL, free text search or statistical computation.
