Accelerate Hadoop MapReduce Performance using Dedicated OrangeFS Servers

September 9, 2013

Recent tests performed at Clemson University achieved a 25 percent improvement in Apache Hadoop Terasort run times by replacing Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) with an OrangeFS configuration using dedicated servers. Key components included extension of the MapReduce “FileSystem” class and a Java Native Interface (JNI) shim to the OrangeFS client. No modifications of Hadoop were required, and existing MapReduce jobs require no modification to utilize OrangeFS. Read more…
