Build a bare metal server with your choice of processor(s), hard drive configuration, RAM, port speed, and more.
Select the cores, storage, and RAM you need in your virtual server, and we'll deploy it in 5 to 15 minutes.
Scale your storage infrastructure on demand while controlling your costs with SoftLayer object storage.
With the help of Cloudera, we've simplified the configuration, ordering, provisioning, and management of Cloudera's Distribution including Apache Hadoop (CDH), the most widely used Hadoop project in the world.
We can deploy a production-ready Hadoop environment in your choice of data center(s) in just a few hours, and you'll have direct access to Cloudera Manager to modify, tweak, and manage your big data platform.
We partnered with Cloudera to determine bare metal server configurations that reliably provide peak operational performance for Cloudera Hadoop. Hadoop management, process, and storage nodes each encounter different types of workloads, so the nodes' hardware should fit each of those workloads specifically.
