HPC Clusters for Big Data Analytics

Most of the data that you handle daily doesn’t reside in neat spreadsheet columns; it comes from sources like information gathering sensors, logs, emails, social media, pictures, images, graphics, videos, medical images, transaction records, GPS signals, and other unstructured data.

Businesses like yours can use this data to:

  • Gauge market reaction and brand perception
  • Identify prime buying factors
  • Segment populations to customize marketing, products, and services
  • Facilitate experimentation
  • Predict outcomes
  • Develop new business goals and business models

 

Until recently, business analytics involved posing What if questions to a desktop or workstation and waiting hours or days for the answer. If the answer didn’t produce actionable insight, the user would ask better questions (each of which also took hours or days for an answer)—basically business at the speed of the Pony Express.

Business analytics, using the hardware and software tools of Big Data analytics, allows a real-time dialogue—answers in seconds or minutes. Business analysts can immediately use the answer to continually frame higher level questions—business at the speed of conversation.

 

Nor-Tech’s Capabilities

In order to get those instantaneous results, Big Data analytics requires an infrastructure built from the ground up. This is where we come in. Nor-Tech’s Big Data analytics enterprise grade servers feature the following:

  • High compute intensity
  • Increased memory, bandwidth, and throughput
  • Intensive parallel processing capabilities
  • Increased VMs per core
  • Advanced virtualization capabilities
  • Dense modular packaging
  • High scalability
  • Features that facilitate security, compliance, and encryption
  • The option to integrate open source technology and support for open innovation
  • The reliability and resiliency to accommodate temporary increases in demand without failure

 

Systems (hardware, firmware, hypervisor, operating system, databases, middleware) that are designed, built, tuned, and supported as a single unit are easier to deploy, scale, and manage.

Nor-Tech has 15 years of experience designing and building this technology.

 

Everything we build is the easiest to deploy in its class on the market—this means that our clients don’t need high level skills in order to use our technology. We are also famous for no-wait time support—meaning no more holding on the phone.
