DataStax + HP Moonshot: Scale-out Database Meets Scale-out Infrastructure

There is a bit of confusion in the Big Data space about how different solutions in the ecosystem intersect with each other, and the infrastructure that they run on. This dynamic is evident with the prevalence of what some vendors position as "Big Data Boxes". These servers are overwhelmingly tuned for Hadoop workloads, with a lot of low-cost, high capacity drives and high CPU core counts.


At DataStax, we’re less concerned about capacity and more concerned with latency. Whereas Hadoop solutions are often configured with particular core to spindle ratios, for our workloads we’d prefer to avoid spindles entirely.
