HP and DataStax to deliver scale-out NoSQL service for big data on Moonshot servers

HP and NoSQL database specialist DataStax have teamed up to offer a joint offering for big data processing using HP's Moonshot server platform and the DataStax Enterprise softwarebased on the Apache Cassandra NoSQL database project.

Available immediately, the service is intended to offer a ready-made database management solution capable of handling huge amounts of data and that can scale out as required.

Customers can approach HP or DataStax as a first point of contact, and support is available from either firm.

The hardware side of the equation is HP's Moonshot server, more specifically using the Moonshot enclosure fitted with Proliant m710 cartridges, each of which is a discrete Intel Xeon E3-1284L v3 quad-core server with 32GB of memory and up to 480GB of solid state drive storage.

This platform was selected because it offers the optimum architecture for running DataStax Enterprise, according to the firm. Each Moonshot enclosure can fit 45 cartridges, each equipped with direct attached local storage, which is an ideal fit for the distributed nature of Apache Cassandra.

"The era of big data is here, and the reason is economics. The price of storage has come down to the point where it is feasible for any company to store unlimited data," said Matt Pfeil, co-founder and chief customer officer at DataStax.

However, traditional systems such as data warehouses or SQL databases depend on the hardware to handle scaling for them, typically requiring a costly high-end storage area network (SAN), according to Pfeil.
