Analytics using Xurmo’s
This whitepaper describes the unique architecture and features of Xurmo. This product is
designed to support investigative analytics (data discovery) on big data. Investigative
analytics is an activity where users can freely navigate the data, even over un-defined
relations. Xurmo uses a highly unique storage model, and its internal architecture is
developed on Hadoop’s modern-day distributed storage technology and Spark’s highly
scalable processing technology.
Every once in a while, comes an innovation that
fundamentally disrupts the way things are done. Hadoop is
one such, that has introduced massively scalable, distributed
computing to the data-rich enterprise. If nothing else, CIOs
can at least imagine an infrastructure where any kind of data
can be brought to play, at any scale and without burning
through their budgets on specialized infrastructure.
