Hadoop Hosting

True Hadoop Hosting

Organizations in a variety of markets are flocking to Hadoop. The technology offers organizations the ability to store and analyze massive amounts of data in a distributed environment. But one significant roadblock is the cost of storage. Until now....

Hadoop Hosting from Bit Refinery offers a dedicated, low-cost hosting solution. You now have the ability to store and analyze enormous amounts of data with in-depth querying capabilities without the need to purchase expensive, massively parallel computing (MPC) appliances.

Bit Refinery's Hadoop infrastructure can be accessed via dedicated private, secure VPN. This allows organizations to harness and take advantage of all the computing power of the Hadoop environment for their specific purpose as opposed to sharing these resources on a typical VM environment. It comes with a complete set of features such as fully dedicated servers, private high-speed network and full console control.

With Hadoop Hosting, the more "nodes" you add, the faster the results and the safer your data is because each file is broken up into "blocks" and replicated among different nodes. So, you get low cost storage that's replicated and allows for unlimited querying capabilities.

Now that's powerful.
