Press Release


ASA Computers Inc is pleased to announce the release of a new optimized solution for Hadoop deployments based on Super Micro Computer’s, Inc., FatTwin™ server platform and ScaleFlux’s computational storage card to improve Hadoop performance.

Recent tests and benchmarking of the solution yielded results which show an increase in performance over standard Hadoop installs by at least 30% while allowing significant reductions in overhead to CPUs. This improvement in performance translates to faster time-to-insight and lower cost per job. The solution is based on a mix of traditional spinning media with ScaleFlux’s computational storage card in a FatTwin™ server platform. FatTwin’s™ dense four Rack unit four node platform has already been adopted by many Hadoop users. Details on the deployment and total cost of ownership savings will be available in a forthcoming white paper.

“As a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, networking solutions and green computing technology, we have a long standing relationship with ASA,” said Raju Penumatcha, Supermicro Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer. “We are very excited to enable this new product offering with ASA. We believe it represents an important step forward for Hadoop customers who want to maximize the efficiency and value of their deployments.”

“Existing and potential customers have shown great interest in this solution particularly because it doesn’t require any special application coding and works out of the box,” says founder and CEO Arvind Bhargava. “We believe this will further enhance the value we bring to our customers and give them a competitive edge in a competitive market space.”

“We are thrilled to lead Computational Storage to mainstream enterprise adoption,” said Hao Zhong, CEO/Co-Founder ScaleFlux. “Two years ago we coined the term, last year we made our industry debut, and now we are at the front of a very large crowd. Our newest CSD 2000 Series products integrated with Supermicro FatTwin™ servers integrated and optimized by ASA will deliver immense value and optimal total cost of ownership.”

This solution is available now and will be deployed shortly in the field.
