Release Digest

Overview of the technology developed

Hitachi today announced the development of the technology increasing the speed of big data analytics on an open source software Hadoop-based distributed data processing platform ("Hadoop platform") by a maximum of 100 times that of a conventional system. This technology converts data processing procedure generated for software processing in conventional Hadoop data processing, to that optimized for parallel processing on hardware, to enable high-speed processing of various types of data in FPGA.

As a result, less number of servers will be needed when conducting high-speed big data analytics, thus minimizing IT investment while enabling interactive analytics by data scientists, quick on-site business decision making, and other timely information services.
