Enabling Hadoop in the Enterprise Data Center
Elastic Platform for Analytics
The HPE Elastic Platform for Big Data Analytics (EPA) is a modular infrastructure foundation to accelerate business insights and enable organizations to rapidly deploy, efficiently scale and securely manage the explosive growth in volume, speed and variety of big data workloads. HPE supports two different deployment models under this platform:
HPE Balanced and Density Optimized (BDO) system supports conventional Hadoop deployments that scale compute and storage together, with some flexibility in choice of memory, processor and storage capacity. This is primarily based on the HPE ProLiant DL380 server platform, with density optimized variants using the HPE Apollo 4200 and Apollo 4530 servers. Organizations that are already invested in balanced systems have the option of consolidating their existing deployments to a more elastic platform with the HPE Workload and Density Optimized (WDO) system.
HPE Workload and Density Optimized (WDO) system harnesses the power of faster Ethernet networks to independently scale compute and storage using a building block approach, and lets you consolidate your data and workloads growing at different rates. The base HPE WDO system uses the HPE Apollo 4200 as a storage block and the HPE Apollo 2000 as a compute block. Additional building blocks such as HPE Moonshot, can be layered on top of the base configuration to target different workloads and requirements.
