NetApp Storage and Data Management Solutions 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

  • Hortonworks certification and compatibility with Hortonworks Data Cloud

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.

NetApp FAS NFS Connector for Hadoop

Use NetApp FAS NFS Connector for Hadoop to run big data analytics on legacy NFSv3 data without moving the data, creating a separate analytics silo, or setting up a Hadoop cluster. NFS Connector lets you switch from HDFS to NFS or run NFS alongside HDFS. NFS Connector works with MapReduce for compute or processing and supports other Apache projects, including HBase and Spark.

HDP Certifications

HDP - HDP Certified badge indicates this partner’s solution has been certified to work with HDP; reviewed for architectural best practices and validated against a comprehensive suite of integration test cases, benchmarked for scale under varied workloads and comprehensively documented.

Yarn Ready - Apache Hadoop YARN is the data operating system for Hadoop 2. YARN Ready certification recognizes applications that integrate with YARN and process data via pushdown computation to the cluster. Examples of a YARN ready solution includes an application that has native YARN application master or leverages scale-out capabilities of the platform like Hive, Spark and MR2.
