MICRO servers in BIG Data
Most of the optimization in Big Data solutions today happens in software because the available hardware choices are too similar. This status quo changes with Microservers. New and differentiated hardware platforms are emerging and the number of server vendors is increasing. These varied designs offer an unprecedented opportunity to increase performance and lower costs at the same time. However, it requires a deeper understanding of the application, the hardware, and rigorous analysis tools. In this talk, I will talk through some of the trends in microservers, and present a simple framework for choosing the best hardware for your deployment.
