Lenovo Big Data Reference Architecture for the MapR Converged Data Platform
MapR and Lenovo have recently teamed together to create the reference architecture (RA) for the MapR Converged Data Platform running on Lenovo hardware. This RA provides planning, design considerations, and best practices for implementing MapR with Lenovo x3650 M5 servers, Lenovo RackSwitch switches and Lenovo XClarity management software.
The RA makes it easy for anyone sizing, optimizing, and purchasing a MapR Big Data cluster. Determining node storage capability versus storage IO performance, for example, is a key decision to make and this RA explains the important factors.
