Networking specialist Mellanox Technologies has joined forces with server/storage company Amax and solid state storage vendor Stec in the introduction of the PHAT-DATA40G, an appliance geared to running Hadoop.
The appliance includes an Amax server, hosting Intel E5-2600 chips (often know as Sandy Bridge), Mellanox’s 40gE networking and 960 GB SSDs from Stec. Installation and management tools from Zettaset are also part of the offering.
