Cloudwatt—Pioneers in Big Data

Cloudwatt—Pioneers in Big Data

• Big Data. Cloudwatt wanted to develop a big data platform-as-a-service offering to help its customers meet the challenge of operating in what it calls the “Data Tsunami” era
• Open Source. It needed to find a hardware and software solution that would enable it to develop this big data offering on an OpenStack* cloud operating system (CloudOS...)

• Proof of Concept. Cloudwatt carried out a proof of concept (PoC) on Intel® Distribution for Apache Hadoop* software running on the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family and Intel® Solid-State Drives (Intel® SSDs) DC S3500 series

Technology Results
• Faster provisioning. Using Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software together with Intel SSDs, Cloudwatt’s internal tests showed the ability to provision a cluster in less than two minutes
• Solid state drives. When analyzing data and adding Intel SSDs to its architecture, Cloudwatt was able to significantly improve the overall performances of its Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software running on OpenStack system, achieving the same results as Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software working in bare-metal mode with traditional hard disk drives (HDDs)
• Guaranteed service. Intel® Manager for Apache Hadoop* software allows Cloudwatt to share the Hadoop cluster between multiple users while maintaining guaranteed service-level agreements (SLA)

Business Value
• Broader portfolio. Intel Distribution for Apache Hadoop software enables Cloudwatt to expand its cloud computing offering beyond storage to big data analytics, attracting new customers and opening up new revenue streams
• Better contacts. Cloudwatt will be able to benefit from Intel’s rich cloud ecosystem to further develop its cloud offerings
