Accelerating Big Data with Hadoop (HDFS, MapReduce, and HBase)
"The SuperMUC has 147,456 cores and a peak performance of about 3 petaflop/s. The main memory will be 288 terabytes together with 12 petabytes hard disk space based on the GPFS file system. The system will use 18,432 Intel Xeon Sandy Bridge-EP processors running in IBM System x iDataPlex servers. It will also use a new form of cooling that IBM developed, called Aquasar, that uses hot water to cool the processors, a design that should cut cooling electricity usage by 40 percent, IBM claims."
Recorded at the 2013 HPC Advisory Council Switzerland Conference.
