Introduction
The IBM® System x® reference architecture is a predefined and optimized hardware infrastructure for IBM InfoSphere® BigInsights™ 2.1, which is a distribution of Apache Hadoop with value-added capabilities that are specific to IBM. The reference architecture provides a predefined hardware configuration for implementing InfoSphere BigInsights 2.1 on System x hardware. The reference architecture can be implemented in two ways to support MapReduce workloads or Apache HBase workloads.
