NetApp Storage for Hadoop
The NetApp Storage Solution for Hadoop provides a ready-to-deploy, enterprise-class infrastructure for the Hadoop platform so you can control and gain insights from your big data.

Validated reference architectures deliver reliable Hadoop clusters and seamless integration of Hadoop with existing infrastructures. Benefits include:

  • Reduced infrastructure (nodes, power, space) costs by 33 percent
  • Support for all Apache-compatible distributions, including Hortonworks

There are two main types of Hadoop reference designs available for deployment:

  • NetApp Storage Solution for Hadoop. For businesses that already have their own servers and networking and need, enterprise-class storage validated with a Hadoop distribution.
  • FlexPod Select with Hadoop.  Joint reference architecture featuring pre-sized, enterprise-class components for Hadoop; validated on NetApp storage and Cisco UCS servers, with Hortonworks distributions of Hadoop.

For NetApp FAS systems, you can use the NetApp NFS Connector for Hadoop to run big data analytics natively on NFSv3 data and start analyzing existing data immediately—without the need to move data, create a separate analytics silo, or set up a Hadoop cluster.
