Learn about Implementing IBM InfoSphere BigInsights on IBM System x. In this IBM Redbooks publication, we describe the need for big data in an organization. We then introduce IBM InfoSphere BigInsights and explain how it differs from standard Hadoop. BigInsights provides a packaged Hadoop distribution, a greatly simplified installation of Hadoop and corresponding open source tools for application development, data movement, and cluster management. BigInsights
also brings more options for data security, and as a component of the IBM big data platform, provides potential integration points with the other components of the platform. For more information on System x, visit http://ibm.co/Q7m3iQ.
