VMworld kicked off yesterday in San Francisco and as usual, there is a lot of energy floating around at the conference. EMC added to that energy by unveiling an exciting new Hadoop Starter Kit. The idea behind the kit is to simplify all Hadoop distribution deployment by reducing the time and cost to deploy, as well as leveraging common IT technologies such as EMC Isilon storage, and VMware virtualization. This new kit combines the power of VMware vSphere Big Data Extensions with EMC Isilon’s scale-out NAS to achieve a comprehensive big data storage and analytics solution.
Lots of interest at the EMC Booth!
