Overview
Bottom rule

IBM accelerates data science and analytics for Hadoop users. IBM now offers and supports the latest open source components as well as value-added features that help ensure Hadoop's success in the enterprise.

BigInsights for Apache Hadoop includes the most current open source components that set the foundation for IBM's value-added analytic and manageability capabilities. It offers all the capabilities needed to manage, store, access, and analyze big data.

Open Platform with Apache Hadoop builds the platform for big data projects and provides the most current Apache Hadoop open source contents. IBM offers this 100% open source Apache distribution as a free download as well as a supported offering.

BigInsights Data Scientist module puts tools in the hands of the user to gain valuable insight from big data stored in Hadoop. BigInsights Data Scientist includes native support for the R programming language (Big R) and adds machine learning algorithms that are optimized for Hadoop. It also includes various analyst capabilities along with Scaling R packages to Hadoop, using declarative machine language text analytics and distilling unstructured data into meaningful data. It provides web-based tooling for annotation. Native support for open source R statistical computing helps clients leverage their existing R code or gain from more than 4,500 freely available statistics packages from the open R community.

BigInsights Analyst module helps discover data in Hadoop for analysis. The module includes Big SQL (a market-leading SQL-on-Hadoop engine) and BigSheets (a spreadsheet-like visualization tool).

BigInsights Enterprise Management module helps administrators manage, monitor, and secure their Hadoop distribution. BigInsights Enterprise Management introduces tools to allocate resources, monitor multiple clusters, and optimize workflows to increase performance on average by 11x, and thereby ensuring deployments can scale to large numbers of users and clusters, and satisfy high workload demand.

Description
Bottom rule

IBM BigInsights offers analytic and enterprise capabilities for Hadoop. It helps organizations to cost-effectively manage and analyze big data, the volume and variety of data that customers and businesses create and collect every day. BigInsights can accelerate time to value for a wide variety of big data and analytic workloads.

Unlike other Hadoop offerings that simply repackage open source projects, IBM provides 100% standard components and also includes value-add technology to withstand the demands of your enterprise, adding administrative, discovery, development, provisioning, security, and support along with best-in-class analytical capabilities.

BigInsights is part of a rich portfolio of data management and analysis tools that can help organizations get the most out of their data, regardless of its form and where it resides. The result is a more user-friendly solution for complex, large scale projects. Because standard interfaces are provided at every level, you need not be concerned about being locked into proprietary technologies or approaches.

Virtual Server

Virtual Server is a unit of measure by which the program can be licensed. A server is a physical computer that is comprised of processing units, memory, and input/output capabilities and that executes requested procedures, commands, or applications for one or more users or client devices. Where racks, blade enclosures, or other similar equipment is being employed, each separable physical device (for example, a blade or a rack-mounted device) that has the required components is considered itself a separate server. A virtual server is either a virtual computer created by partitioning the resources available to a physical server or an unpartitioned physical server. Licensee must obtain Virtual Server entitlements for each virtual server made available to the program, regardless of the number of processor cores in the virtual server or the number of copies of the program on the virtual server.

Statement of good security practices
Bottom rule

IT system security involves protecting systems and information through prevention, detection, and response to improper access from within and outside your enterprise. Improper access can result in information being altered, destroyed, or misappropriated or can result in misuse of your systems to attack others. Without a comprehensive approach to security, no IT system or product should be considered completely secure and no single product or security measure can be completely effective in preventing improper access. IBM systems and products are designed to be part of a comprehensive security approach, which will necessarily involve additional operational procedures, and may require other systems, products, or services to be most effective. IBM does not warrant that systems and products are immune from the malicious or illegal conduct of any party.
