Real-Time Big Data Analytics is the Target of Newest Server from Quanta QCT
High-Performance 60-core unit targets organizations striving for shortest time to business insights from massive data streams.
FREMONT, Calif. – February 25, 2014 – Large enterprises and service providers supporting mission-critical applications and big data analytics in real time require servers with massive memory and performance to capitalize on trends as they emerge. They also want the higher densities, energy savings and serviceability enjoyed by hyperscale cloud datacenters.
To fill this emerging and growing market, Quanta QCT today unveiled the QuantaGrid Q71L-4U. The 4U, four-way server uses the Intel® Xeon® processor E7-4800 v2 product family with up to 15 cores per processor, totaling 60 cores and 120 threads per system. The server offers a combination of reliability, high I/O throughput, expandability, efficiency and serviceability that until now were difficult to achieve in the enterprise datacenter.
Big data analytics and the Internet of Things present opportunities for many organizations to create revenue-generating services from the information locked inside their data. According to IDC (Worldwide Big Data Technology and Services Forecast, Dec 2013), the big data technology and services market is expected to grow 27 percent annually through 2017 to reach $32.4 billion. Real-time analytics is a segment of the big data market that seeks to extract insights as the data from connected devices streams into datacenters. Speed is an advantage, and the QuantaGrid Q71L-4U is an ideal choice for this application.
