As with Riak’s hosting on Engine Yard, I’ve been wondering what Joyent solution for Hadoop is about. John Rath writes for DataCenterKnowledge:
Software product development services company Altoros Systems said that Hadoop clusters on Joyent Cloud produced a nearly 3X faster disk I/O response time versus identically-sized infrastructure. Through the use of the Joyent operating system virtualization and CPU bursting technology, Joyent says it is able to extract better response times and deliver results to data scientists and analysts faster.
