Pivotal Analytics Workbench Demonstrates the Ease of Switching Between FDR InfiniBand and 40Gigabit Ethernet

Pivotal’s Analytics Workbench offers partners the power of a 1000-node Hadoop cluster, providing a publicly-available data processing powerhouse, free of charge, for 90 day engagements. It also offers a powerful platform for testing. To this end, the AWB team collaborated in October with Pivotal’s partner Mellanox Technologies to test the effect of flipping the cluster’s network connection between InfiniBand and Ethernet on-the-fly, affording customers unparalleled flexibility for cost savings in their Hadoop deployments. This approach also proved they were able to run the cluster in mixed mode. Mixed mode allows you to use one vendor and bridge separate network-connected platforms—for example, connecting a Hadoop cluster to both EMC storage arrays and VMware vSphere. Such an approach reduces cost, difficulty, and latency.
