Bringing the Power of SAS to Hadoop
Think about this: in 2000, 1GB of storage cost about $16, whereas today it costs about 6 cents. Here’s where it gets interesting—1 TB, massively parallel processing (MPP) appliance runs for about 100K – 200K WITHOUT the total cost of implementation considered. But in contrast, 1 TB run through a cluster of commodity servers costs around 2 -5K.
This is the value proposition for Apache Hadoop. But despite the value cause for deciding to adopt this solution, there are a few things to know and consider.
Consult the following white paper to explore the current landscape of Hadoop with several considerations as to why you should consider moving towards Hadoop for your big data needs. Learn how various organizations are using Hadoop, technology considerations, and more.
