Abstract

We discuss study of the nature and requirements of many big data applications in terms of Ogres that describe important general characteristics. We develop ways of categorizing applications with features or facets that are useful in understanding suitable software and hardware approaches where 6 different broad paradigms are identified. This allows study of benchmarks and to understand when high performance computing (HPC) is useful. We propose adoption of DevOps motivated scripts to support hosting of applications on the many different infrastructures like OpenStack, Docker, OpenNebula, Commercial clouds and HPC supercomputers.
