ScaleOut Analytics Server (HVM)

ScaleOut Analytics Server combines a scalable, in-memory data grid (IMDG) with powerful computational features to deliver near real-time map/reduce analytics. This platform employs a simplified form of map/reduce that reduces development time and accelerates performance. ScaleOut Analytics Server enables applications to execute user-defined methods in parallel on a selected set of data and then combine the results with user-defined merge algorithms. It stores datasets as objects in a scalable, in-memory data grid, minimizing data motion and providing fast results. Performing analysis with ScaleOut ...  Read more

Highlights
  • Ease of Use: Map/reduce methods are written as in-memory Java methods without use of APIs to access data from the in-memory data grid. Data for analysis is selected using parallel query based on object properties.
  • Automatic code shipping: Ships application code and dependent libraries to each server and deploys them, creating an execution environment on the in-memory data grid. Applications can pre-stage the execution environment to optimize performance.
  • Fast Performance, No Tuning: Automatically executes map and reduce methods in parallel across multiple cores within each server and all servers within the in-memory data grid. The grid merges results across servers to provide an in-memory result.

Product Description

ScaleOut Analytics Server combines a scalable, in-memory data grid (IMDG) with powerful computational features to deliver near real-time map/reduce analytics. This platform employs a simplified form of map/reduce that reduces development time and accelerates performance. ScaleOut Analytics Server enables applications to execute user-defined methods in parallel on a selected set of data and then combine the results with user-defined merge algorithms. It stores datasets as objects in a scalable, in-memory data grid, minimizing data motion and providing fast results. Performing analysis with ScaleOut Analytics Server requires no special knowledge of parallel programming. The user writes methods to analyze data and merge results using standard Java methods, then uses queries on object properties to select objects for analysis. In addition, the software automatically deploys application code and dependent libraries on all grid servers, eliminating time-consuming setup. Using Single Method Invocation (SMI), applications can invoke a method on a specified set of objects, supply parameters to invocation, and receive the method's result value. SMI can be used to analyze a targeted set of stored objects, or to update them without replacing their full contents in a manner similar to stored procedures in database systems. NOTE: At this time, this product instance must be launched using the "Launch with EC2 Console"option.

Usage Instructions

To administer this product, ScaleOut Software, Inc. provides a StateServer Management Console on Windows, and a command-line Python script combined with a Web Management Console for Linux.

To acquire these tools on your management workstation, download and install the latest ScaleOut StateServer Remote Client installer for Linux operating systems or the ScaleOut StateServer installer for Windows systems from our Support Downloads page: http://www.scaleoutsoftware.com/support/support-downloads/. On Windows operating systems, select the Remote Client/Cloud Mgt. setup type.

Once installed, please see the ScaleOut StateServer Help file for step-by-step instructions to launch and manage ScaleOut StateServer on Amazon EC2. This help file can be found in the product installation directory on your local system, or online at http://www.scaleoutsoftware.com/support/product-documentation/. On Windows systems, this help file is also available in the Start menu. Once opened, please review the sections under Deploying SOSS in the Cloud, including both the Overview and Deploying in Amazon EC2 sections.

ScaleOut StateServer typically runs on multiple instances in Amazon EC2 to form a single in-memory data grid. This enables the grid to scale its storage capacity and performance to handle large workloads. For this reason, this product should be launched using the ScaleOut management tools instead of within the AWS Marketplace Web site. The management tools automatically interconnect a user-specified number of instances to form or scale a data grid. The user can launch and manage multiple named, in-memory data grids using the ScaleOut management tools running on a workstation that connects to Amazon EC2.

Client applications running as a single instance or as multiple instances can connect to and make use of a deployed in-memory data grid using APIs provided by the ScaleOut StateServer Remote Client libraries. Client applications can run either within Amazon EC2 or on remote client systems. Please install the ScaleOut Remote Client libraries on all instances or servers that need to access a deployed in-memory data grid. Follow the instructions in the Product Documentation to enable a client application to dynamically connect to a named data grid within Amazon EC2. These instructions explain how to configure the client configuration file, soss_client_params.txt, which the user stages in the ScaleOut StateServer installation folder on each client instance or remote client system prior to starting the client application.
