Join Archimedes Inc and Univa as they explore shared infrastructures including Hadoop in production.  

Featuring the cutting-edge case study from Archimedes Inc., developer of the Archimedes Model, whose mission is to revolutionize the quality and efficiency of healthcare worldwide through mathematics. As Archimedes’ business scaled to support more users, complex diseases and health outcomes, the pressure was on to ensure the IT infrastructure could keep up to the demands of the business for a reasonable cost.  

What you will learn:  

  • Gain insight to the strategies Archimedes used to solve performance issues in their pipeline with Hadoop and how Univa Grid Engine enabled them to quickly move to a production shared infrastructure.  
  • Discover the new functionality in Grid Engine available only from Univa to help streamline business efficiency.  
  • Hear how one industry leading company approached the problem and the methodology they used to productize a solution.  

If you’re looking to improve the effectiveness of your pipeline with data management tools like Hadoop while saving up to half of the investment with a production-ready solution then this webinar is for you.  

Univa Grid Engine creates a shared infrastructure that easily unifies Big Compute and Big Data workload management making it possible to fully leverage shared cluster resources with support for innovations like Hadoop automation, multi-core systems, hybrid servers and cloud computing.
