In our previous blogs, we explained how to configure a Hadoop Single Node environment here and here. In today's edition, we'll explain the introductory steps that are necessary for configuring a Hadoop Cluster Node environment for Oracle VMs on SPARC. This is the second installment in a three-piece series.

Fujitsu's PRIMEQUEST servers are targeted at business and mission-critical computing. They offer highest availability and business continuity as well as highest performance combined with a new operational efficiency and truly open standards. The newest addition to the PRIMEQUEST range is the 3800B that has been designed to handle demanding corporate databases, in-memory solutions and business-critical applications.

In part 1 of this blog series, I provided instructions on configuring a Spark cluster environment using Hadoop YARN running on highly-reliable Fujitsu M10/Fujitsu SPARC M12 servers. By taking advantage of enterprise-grade, highly reliable hardware, customers can avoid a Single Point of Failure (SPOF) in a Hadoop environment. In part 2, we provide step-by-step instructions on how to configure a Hadoop Single Node environment and will continue in subsequent blogs.

When I started my career in IT, SPARC/Solaris was the platform of choice for system development, from small-scale systems to mission critical systems. Most open source software (OSS) was also first developed on Solaris and then migrated to other platforms. In recent years the performance and reliability of the Intel Architecture (IA) platform have grown, and most OSS has been developed using IA/Linux, but SPARC/Solaris continues to evolve. Integrated development of OS and hardware create strong advantages for each platform. For example, in Fujitsu M10/Fujitsu SPARC M12, as CPU functions such as SWoC (Software on Chip) are enhanced, extensions to automatically use SWoC functions are implemented in Solaris OS. This results in higher reliability of Fujitsu M10/Fujitsu SPARC M12 hardware to ensure stable operation of the IT system. In addition, many OSS have been optimized for the latest version of Solaris, which makes stable OSS operation possible. Oftentimes, I receive inquiries about the combination of SPARC/Solaris and OSS from customers who understand the advantages of SPARC/Solaris and continue to use it. In this blog, I explore the use of SPARC/Solaris in a wider range of fields.

One of the greatest obstacles for a healthy data center development always was that most companies regarded IT as a "necessary evil." More recently, however, that view has changed considerably – not least because platforms like Fujitsu's PRIMERGY CX400 M4 systems serve as powerful yet cost-effective key enablers that fit into almost any usage scenario.

Since at least 2010, businessmen, politicians and technicians from all over the world have discussed plans for a digital transformation (or "digitalization") of the global economy. The core idea behind these concepts is that in order to boost their productivity and revenues (and, possibly, their home country's GDP), companies must connect and integrate business and IT processes as well as information and production systems as closely as possible. Unfortunately, that sounds much easier than it is, since many enterprises don't operate adequate hardware platforms that would help them to get the job done. Thankfully, Fujitsu's new quad-socket rack server PRIMERGY RX4770 M4 has all the capabilities they need for the powerful backend.

One of the toughest challenges for IT infrastructure providers is to build standard server hardware that truly deserves the name. Still worse, this goal seems to be harder to accomplish today than it was in 2007 or 1997. Fujitsu's freshly released portfolio of fourth-generation PRIMERGY dual- and quad-socket servers, however, proves it can still be done. Case in point: the FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2540 M4.

Ever since we started selling industry-standard servers in the mid-1990s, one key goal of Fujitsu has always been to provide our customers with powerful systems that easily adapt to hundreds, if not thousands of different usage scenarios. The 2017 class of Fujitsu's dual- and quad-socket PRIMERGY rack and scale-out servers not only carries on the same proud tradition, but offers major improvements regarding this kind of versatility – not least because the new models are based on the new Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable family.

Back in April, a so-called Product Change Notification from Intel suddenly appeared online, providing CIOs and IT departments with a first glimpse at the naming conventions and tech specs of the company's upcoming "Purley" line of server processors. Essentially a 'port' of the Skylake microarchitecture to the Xeon brand, it is intended to serve as the "foundation for secure, agile, multi-cloud data centers" and gives users a wider range of "workload-optimized" performance options to choose from. Starting in July, the Purley platform – officially dubbed the Intel® Xeon® Processor Scalable family – will appear in our new, fourth generation of dual- and quad-socket PRIMERGY servers as well as the PRIMEQUEST 3800B.

While the majority of mono-socket PRIMERGY systems consists of tower servers, Fujitsu has long made it a rule to also offer a rack version that uses the same components and basic concepts, only this time in a 1U housing – or pizza-box, as some might say. The result is an affordable, highly configurable server that fits in almost everywhere and efficiently handles simple as well as business-critical tasks.

Once small and medium businesses have grown accustomed to the advantages of genuine x64 servers, they will inevitably develop a taste for the more sophisticated features of the platform, such as extended scalability, expandability, and flexibility. The FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY TX1330 M3 was developed to exactly meet these advanced requirements.

Over the years, Fujitsu has often been lauded for its ability to build servers that are small enough to fit into almost any environment, but still offer robust performance and a comprehensive set of capabilities. Our new PRIMERGY TX1320 M3 was designed to keep up that reputation – it's a state of the art, ultra-compact full-fledged server that SMEs can utilize to expand their business.

As IT infrastructures continually evolve, many small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are still looking for an entry into the world of server-based computing, while others are looking to expand their existing server infrastructure via cost effective platforms. The FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY TX1310 M3 has all the capabilities it takes to meet both requirements.

The first two parts of our mini-series covered central aspects of Microsoft's cloud-oriented new server OS as well as key innovations in Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition. In the third and final part, we'll focus on the security and storage/data protection enhancements that play central roles in the Datacenter Edition – more precisely, on guarded fabrics, shielded VMs, Storage Spaces Direct, and Storage Replica.

In our previous post we gave you an overview of the editions of Microsoft's cloud-oriented new server OS as well as the distinct installation options that exist for varying usage scenarios. Today, we'll talk about the most innovative central features in Windows Server 2016 Standard Edition – namely, Just Enough Administration/Just-in-Time Administration, Nested Virtualization, Containers, and an upgraded Windows Defender.

Back in the late 1990s, many self-appointed IT gurus seemed slightly amused when Microsoft – then still led by founder Bill Gates – proclaimed its five-year-old server OS was now ready to compete in the data center market. Today, these announcements look like some of the most humble forecasts ever to come out of Redmond,: last August, researchers for IT pro network Spiceworks found that editions of Windows Server are now powering 9 out of 10 on-premises machines (87.7%), with the rest running Linux or Unix derivatives. With Windows Server 2016, Microsoft continues its quest for a similar position in the cloud.

With Windows Server 2016, Microsoft has unleashed the second generation of its cloud-ready server operating system. Along with technical and functional improvements, this latest release introduces a new, core-based licensing model for the popular Standard and Datacenter Editions that replaces the traditional processor-based approach. According to Microsoft, this method "provides a more consistent licensing metric [...], improves workload portability" and generally helps to streamline the licensing process.
