First ARM Cortex-A57-Based Hadoop Demonstration Achieved on AMD Opteron A-Series Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Sep 30, 2014 -- AMD (NYSE: AMD) today will make the first public demonstration of Apache™ Hadoop® running on an ARM® Cortex®-A57-based AMD Opteron™ A-Series processor. In a technical session at the JavaOne™ conference to be delivered this afternoon by AMD corporate fellow Leendert van Doorn, the company will show how the expanding AMD Opteron A-Series server software ecosystem now includes Hadoop, the Java-based framework for storage and large-scale data processing. In addition, Henrik Stahl, vice president, Java product management and Internet of Things at Oracle, will join van Doorn on stage to discuss Oracle's support for AMD's 64-bit ARM server architecture.

Hadoop, a distributed processing technology used primarily for big data analysis, is a rapidly expanding market expected to reach upward of $50 billion by 2020.(1) The combination of 64-bit ARM-based servers and Hadoop is designed to accelerate the changing economics of large-scale computing by enabling distributed processing across clusters of ARM-based servers. Running on the recently announced AMD Opteron™ A1100 development platform, the demonstration will feature Apache Hadoop running on the Oracle JDK. Leendert will also show multiple nodes running the same demonstration using Linux environments based on Fedora technology from the Red Hat-sponsored Fedora community and the community supported OpenSUSE Project.

"This demonstration showcases AMD's leadership in the development of a robust, standards-based ecosystem for ARM servers," said van Doorn. "Servers powered by AMD Opteron A-Series processors are well-suited for Hadoop, offering an efficient scale-out compute platform that can also double as an economical persistent storage platform."

AMD continues to drive innovation in the server ecosystem by enabling virtually seamless software and tools integration across both the x86 and ARM architecture environments. Through its collaboration with partners such as ARM, Linaro, Oracle, Red Hat and SUSE, AMD is providing users access to a complete development environment for ARM based applications and cross-platform support.
