Hadoop, the open source Big Data platform, has found a home on Cray Inc.'s big data analytics appliance -- called the Cray Urika-XA system.

The appliance includes a pre-integrated version of Cloudera Enterprise -- though Cray says the appliance can also run user-installed analytic tools. The appliance has more than 1,500 processor cores in a single rack, 38 TB of SSD storage, and InfiniBand interconnect. Additional software on the system includes Apache Spark, Cray Adaptive Runtime for Hadoop and the Urika-XA management system.
