HPE announced new model of Apollo server series. Looking at the architecture, it is clear, that HP didn`t only introduced new chassis which can hold up to two nodes. HPE made big change in the way how disks shelfs are connected to the servers. In Apollo 4510 with oneApollo 4520 node or Apollo 4530 with 3 nodes, every node has access to one of disk shelfs. On the other hand in new Apollo 4520 we get two nodes, which has access to all disks installed in the chassis.

This architecture design is perfect fit for parallel filesystem like Lustre which gives Us very dense solution with HA built-in for OST and MDS servers.

Todays BigData solution implementations faces many problems, especially when it comes to hardware and software management of entire clusterbrain. Administrators are looking for software familiar to vCenter in Vmware culsters, which they could use to administer their whole HPC and BigData Cluster containg hundreds or even thausands of nodes. This article fucuses on HP CMU Software, which can be implemented to administer BigData Apache Hadoop clusters.
