A core component of IBM’s platform for Big Data, IBM InfoSphere BigInsights is inspired by, and is compatible with, open source Apache Hadoop and used to store, manage, and gain insights from Internet-scale data at rest.
InfoSphere BigInsights Basic Edition, IBM entry-level offering, is available at no charge and can be used to analyse up to 10TB of data. Optional Elite support is available for those that need it. BigInsights Solutions developed using BigInsights Basic Edition can be deployed using BigInsights Enterprise Edition.
BigInsights Basic Edition includes the following:
- Open source Apache Hadoop to support massive, scale-out data processing and analysis on commonly available hardware.
- Open source components from the Hadoop ecosystem.
- A management console for easy administration.
- Easy integration with IBM InfoSphere Warehouse and DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows.
