The big data ecosystem was on full display at last week’s Strata + Hadoop World conference in San Jose. At the ripe old age of 10, Hadoop is still the driving force, but newer frameworks like Spark and Kafka are gaining steam. Here are some of the top trends your Datanami editor pulled from the show based on observations and discussions with attendees and vendors. Let’s start with the biggest news from Strata, which was the rise of Kafka and Read more…
Big data is not about big; it’s not even about data…It’s about the value that can be found in the information, argued CTO of Fujitsu Technology Solutions, Joseph Reger, during a talk at the International Supercomputing Conference (ISC’13) this week. Taking the stage with his colleague, Kozo Otsuka, the pair discussed some of the experimental applications that Fujitsu is working on in trying to sift the value from data for the purposes of saving lives.
This week’s news cycle was driven forward by announcements that came out of the International Supercomputing Conference in Germany, which highlights the merger between many supercomputing and big data technologies. On our list of five stories of note this week are Convey Computer, which is seeking a top slot on the Graph 500, Terascala, Panopticon, Digital Reasoning and….
This year at the International Supercomputing Conference in Germany, the list of the top data-intensive systems was revealed with heavy tie-ins to placements on the Top500 list of the world’s fastest systems, entries from most of the national labs, and plenty of BlueGene action. The list of the top “big data” systems, called the Graph500, measures the performance of….
News In Brief
Fujitsu Laboratories last week announced that it’s developed a column-oriented data storage and processing engine that can quickly analyze large amounts of data stored on a PostgreSQL database. The technology, which utilizes vector processing, is being showcased this week at a conference in Japan. Fujitsu has a long history developing big systems designed to handle heavy transactional loads. It was a close development partner of Sun Microsystems for 64-bit Sparc servers until Sun was acquired by Oracle. Today the $4.5 Read more…
Conflating business intelligence with big data is like confusing a photograph and a high definition video, says Gernot Fels, principle product manager with Fujitsu.
According to many in the HPC community, especially on the hardware side, the big data trend (and all the buzz associated with it) is creating new opportunities for the once “high and mighty” world of supercomputing. This is a field that….

This Just In
Fujitsu announced that it has received an order for a new supercomputer system from the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). The core of the new system will be the successor model of the FUJITSU Supercomputer PRIMEHPC FX10, which is currently under development. The new system will have an overall theoretical peak performance of 3.4 petaflops, or 24 times that of the current system, which will ensure that JAXA has the processing capacity needed to analyze enormous volumes of data.
At Fujitsu Forum, Fujitsu announced today significant milestones in its comprehensive range of globally-available offerings for the SAP HANA platform – including Fujitsu’s 300th customer installation of SAP HANA, the introduction of SAP HANA on the Fujitsu Global Cloud Platform and the general availability of its latest fully-virtualized FlexFrame eco-system for running the SAP ERP application on SAP HANA.
Fujitsu today announced that, as part of the continuous efforts of the FUJITSU Big Data Initiative to organize the company’s lineup of big data-related products and services, it will be launching today a menu of ten offerings for presenting optimal ways in which big data can be used to address customer business challenges. The FUJITSU Big Data Initiative is only available in Japan.
