BlueData is the pioneer in big data private clouds. The company is democratizing big data by streamlining and simplifying big data infrastructure and eliminating complexity as a barrier to adoption. With its EPIC software platform, enterprises can now build agile, highly secure and cost-effective big data private cloud deployments that deliver value in hours instead of months and at a cost savings of 50-75% compared to traditional approaches.

Overview

BlueData is a software solution that gives Hadoop Big Data deployments the benefits of virtualization and private clouds— efficiency, utilization, multi-tenancy, elasticity
 and policy based automation—without compromising on performance. BlueData dramatically reduces deployment complexity and improves business agility.

 

Using BlueData, enterprises can now derive value from their growing data sets within days instead of months, at a fraction of the cost of current methods. BlueData provides an elastic self-service infrastructure for Big Data applications. Data scientists and application developers can create clusters on demand and execute jobs without worrying about underlying infrastructure. BlueData effectively allows users and data scientists to consume Big Data as a service within secure, private cloud environments.

 

BlueData installs as a cluster virtualization layer between the underlying physical infrastructure and the Big Data distributions and applications, transforming physical infrastructure into an agile, flexible platform. It delivers all
of the benefits of private-cloud computing, including multi- tenancy and data isolation, elasticity, enterprise security and control. A secure web-based portal gives IT administrators insight and control over all clusters, jobs and infrastructure status. BlueData also automates routine tasks such as provisioning, updates and monitoring.

Key Features

Rapid, Self-service Provisioning

Use BlueData to deploy and test applications in minutes with rapid, self-service provisioning. Users can create instant, custom clusters in the ElasticPlane™cluster virtualization layer. Data scientists and development engineers use BlueData’s self-service user portal for creating and managing clusters and jobs, reducing the IT overhead of managing disparate and growing Big Data needs within the enterprise. The IT and DevOps teams can use the administrative portal to monitor underlying resource usage, and manage users and access controls for clusters, applications and data storage.

Secure Multi-tenancy

Different groups in the enterprise can run Big Data jobs simultaneously on the same physical infrastructure. BlueData provides multi-tenancy and data isolationat the virtualization layer. The platform integrates with enterprise security and authentication mechanisms such as LDAP, Active Directory and Kerberos.

Storage Efficiency & Data Virtualization

Because BlueData DataTap™ can separate compute and storage infrastructure, enterprises don’t have to make multiple copies of data for Big Data analysis. Sensitive data can remain within shared enterprise storage such as NFS, GlusterFS, CEPH, Swift or HDFS, without the cost and risks of creating and maintaining multiple copies.

Policies and Resource Management

A policy engine defines service levels based on priority and automates resource management based on tenant and application needs. Administrators can define user groups and assign policies to restrict access to jobs, data or clusters based on departments or roles.

Run Multiple Apps on the Same Hardware

Users may create virtual clusters running multiple versions of a Hadoop distribution or different Hadoop distributions on the same physical cluster. Enterprises can then evaluate their options on an apples-to-apples basis, reducing the need for—and cost of—bare-metal resources.

Scalable Performance

BlueData applies IOBoost™, patented I/O optimization technologies to provide the benefits of virtualization while delivering near bare-metal performance. Application-aware caching and elastic resource management adapts dynamically to changing workload and application requirements to deliver the best performance on a virtualization platform.

Specifications

Here are the minimum requirements for physical servers you need to run EPIC:

  • CPU cores: 8.
  • RAM: 64GB.
  • Storage: 300GB of free space.
  • NIC: At least one Ethernet card.
  • Operating Systems: CentOS 6.5, RHEL 6.5.
  • Access: root.
