A lot of big data/Hadoop implementations are swimming against the currents of what recent history has taught about large scale computing, and the result is a significant amount of waste. So says Univa President and CEO Gary Tyreman, who claims that established HPC tools are more than capable of driving value where big data workloads are concerned. This is where Univa’s Grid Engine resource management software platform adds value for enterprises wading into the Hadoop pool. Univa is seeing new revenues (approx. 6% of their total in 2012) by enabling their customers to run Hadoop in a shared infrastructure model, which ultimately saves them significant dollars in infrastructure and support costs.
