Session Abstract

The University of Michigan(U-M), in partnership with Marvell, has built a Data Analytics cluster with ThunderX processors based on the Hadoop and Spark family of tools. We present information on the deployment and use of the cluster, which uses software packaged by the Linaro Big Data teams. We also present feedback to the Big Data on ARM community and future plans for development for Big Data on ARM at U-M as well.
