Survey on hypervisor usage - we'll be sharing all of the results. Please take the survey and share. #vmware   #citrix   #microsoft   #oracle   #openstack  
While VMware is still dominant in the x86 server virtualization market, there are clear signs that the hypervisor is being commoditized and that competing solutions are closing the functionality gap. Over half of respondents to Wikibon's survey last year were running multiple hypervisors.

New Wikibon research on the use of density optimized servers for Hadoop clusters
http://wikibon.org/wiki/v/High_Performance_Computing_Meets_Big_Data
#dell   #hp   #oracle   #sgi   #cloudera   #hortonworks  
Introduction. Big Data Hadoop is moving from development and test cases, to small-scale production, to large-scale production mode. Hadoop is well tested in development/test and small-scale projects but is new to the demands of meeting the more exacting requirements of large-scale production ...

Not sure that Infiniband has a place in a Hadoop cluster. Otherwise agree completely with the implied conclusion that SGI beats others hands down when it comes to Large Hadoop clusters. 

There are a few lesser known players out there that come close to or beat SGI on density. PSSC Labs CloupOOP  ( http://www.pssclabs.com/data-center/cloud-computing/big-data/high-density-hadoop-server ) comes to mind.

I think the bottom line is that the tier 1 server vendors still don't get Hadoop or don't want to lose the margin they are accustomed to in other environments. And don;t get me started on storage vendors re: Hadoop.
