Big Data vs HPC

Found this great slide showing the fundamental differences between Big Data platforms and HPC in Steve Loughran‘s “My other computer is a datacenter” presentation (embedded at the end):

Big Data vs HPC

  2. Big Data platforms assume failure is inevitable and are architected for it.
