On Premise Or Cloud
Platfora Big Data Analytics is software, and is optimized for deployment in your data center, in a managed data center, or in the cloud — wherever your Hadoop cluster is located. Platfora installs on a small cluster of machines, and is ideally located next to, or with high-speed connectivity to, your Hadoop cluster. Installation can be completed within hours and end users can be at work in the data the same day.
Platfora requires a Hadoop implementation and must be able to connect to the Hadoop distributed file system (HDFS) or Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3).
Platfora Big Data Analytics is a scale-out solution utilizing commodity x86 servers with a minimum of 32 GB of system RAM, quad-core processor, and sufficient local disk to store all active lenses. Contact Platfora for more details about system sizing and recommended configurations.
