Given the composable nature of the Cisco/DriveScale solution, one can scale as needed on either the compute elements or the storage elements very easily, thereby adding capacity as required. This gives the solution a very flexible architecture, not just in terms of composability but also in terms of capacity scaling.
The DriveScale-Cloudera reference architecture guide is designed to provide an overview of the combined solution, the key components that are employed and details on how to install and setup clusters using these technologies.
The Dell EMC / DriveScale reference architecture described in this document will run any modern workload deployment including Cloudera, Hortonworks and Apache Hadoop.
The DriveScale/Promise reference architecture described in this document will run any standard modern workload such as Big Data workload deployment including Cloudera, Hortonworks, MAPR and Apache Hadoop. DriveScale solution architects are available to help customers design their infrastructure for optimal cost and performance.
