Scaling Hadoop, Webinar by Sun

Sun engineers released extended version of their Hadoop Summit '09 presentation:

Hadoop is typically scaled on a large pool of commodity system nodes. However, by using multicore, multithreaded processors, you can achieve the same scale with fewer machines. In this Webinar, we will discuss how Sun's chip multithreading (CMT) technology-based UltraSPARC T2 Plus processor can process up to 256 tasks in parallel within a single node.

We will also share with you how we evaluated CPU and I/O throughput, memory size, and task counts to extract maximal parallelism per single node, as well as an evaluation of the performance.
