Watch Choosing Hardware for Hadoop Event Streaming Online
With the rise of "big data" problems comes a need for new solutions. One is Hadoop, which implements two very interesting technologies used at Google: a file system, and a processing framework, both tailor-made for "commodity" hardware. Large companies using Hadoop are building their own servers, spec'ed to meet the most cost-effective cluster configuration possible. At the same time, most of the established hardware vendors have developed their own offerings around Hadoop, combining new and existing designs to cater to customers who cannot build their own machines.
