Nielsen and Intel Migrate HPC Efficiency and Data Analytics to Big Data

May 16, 2016

Nielsen has collaborated with Intel to migrate important pieces of HPC technology into Nielsen’s big-data analytic workflows including MPI, mature numerical libraries from NAG (the Numerical Algorithms Group), as well as custom C++ analytic codes. This complementary hybrid approach integrates the benefits of Hadoop data management and workflow scheduling with an extensive pool of HPC tools and C/C++ capabilities for analytic applications. In particular, the use of MPI reduces latency, permits reuse of the Hadoop servers, and co-locates the MPI applications close to the data. Read more…
