Big Data

Needs Big Iron

Businesses today create unprecedented amounts of data. Storing, processing, and pulling value from that data is no easy task. These unstructured (NoSQL) big data solutions demand scalable, powerful infrastructure. Build your big data solution on a cloud platform built to perform. Completely customize your environment or get a head start with recommended best-practices-based hardware configurations we’ve configured.


Bare Metal Power

Avoid the performance costs of shared hardware in virtual systems.

Predictability

The predictable performance of bare metal lets you plan ahead to scale as your operations grow.

Higher Scalability

Scale up, out, in, or down on demand, with two to four hour deployment and pay-as-you-go pricing.


Built to Order Solutions

Combine and configure your ideal bare metal and big data application.

Big data isn’t confined to a particular database structure or software platform, so you aren’t restricted either when it comes to building your big data infrastructure on our platform. Whether you’re creating the next big thing in big data platform architecture or you’re using proprietary software to gather, store, analyze, and deliver information to your application, you’ll benefit from the power of bare metal server resources.


Cloud vs. On-Premises IT for Big Data

Save thousands by moving your big data to DWTI

Big data demands scalable IT infrastructure. Traditional on-premises environments require significant capital expenditures, capacity planning, and lead-time to accommodate the massive amounts of information captured by big data applications. Use our Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) tool to compare the costs of building your big data environment in-house with building it on DWTI.


Application-specific Best Practices

Big data gets a big head start

In collaboration with Cloudera, MongoDB, Inc., and Basho, we’ve developed optimized hardware configurations for their big data applications. Consider these specs when you build your bare metal environment, and select your big data application in the shopping cart to have it provisioned onto your servers automatically. Once you place your order, your bare metal infrastructure will be online and ready for you in 2-4 hours.


Built to Order

Big Data Solutions, Built from Scratch

Some customers prefer to configure their big data infrastructures from the ground up. If that’s you, you’re in the right place. DWTI has the servers and services you need to do just that. Create a custom big data infrastructure solution at DWTI, and your application can leverage the exact amount of performance and scalability you want from our servers and advanced network.

Scale

Handle large workloads and data volumes by scaling out on demand. Add new hardware with the latest processors without having to reconfigure your solution. Expand storage capacity as you need it.


icon-software

Software

Install the software of your choosing. We have options for MongoDB, Riak, and Cloudera Hadoop that can be installed prior to deployment, or you can install your software of choice whenever you like.


icon-build

Start Building

No hard hat needed

Building a multi-server big data solution is simple. Decide which bare metal servers you want to serve as the foundation of your solution, and configure them with the hard drives and RAM you need. Submit your order, and your servers will be online and ready for you in 2-4 hours. You’ll have direct access to install your choice of applications or operating systems with which you’ll manage your big data environment.
