Question by : Can hadoop be used to play games?
I have been researching lately about “hadoop” over the web since our professor at the university told us about it(i am a Computer Science student).So far I have found out that it can be used to all sorts of things, like searching,compilling large texts, image recognitioning and many many more, but then when I searched at google I couldn’t find anything about hadoop and game developing.So here is my question, can “hadoop”, with its “Map-Reduce”, be used to program 2-3 CPUs so that they can run the same game at the same time?
Let’s say that a game requires 2.6 GHz CPU processor and you got 2 laptops with 1.5 GHz CPU processor each, can I apply that somehow so I can run the game smoothly??

P.S.Sorry if I said too much this is the first time that I use Yahoo Answers.

Best answer:

Answer by abhishek j
if a game requires large set of data (like to be searched or processed) or some calculation which cannot be handled by one cpu than it might help..

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2012

Infineta Systems, the first and only provider of WAN optimization systems for Big Traffic workflows, today announced that its Infineta Data Mobility Switch (DMS) was selected as a finalist for Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.coms annual Product of the Year award in the network equipment category. Infineta is one of six finalists to be selected by a panel of judges out of hundreds of entries.

Infineta Systems is the first networking company to develop and market commercial WAN optimization systems that accelerate inter-data center WANs running at up to 10Gbps wire speeds. Powered by its Velocity Dedupe Engine, the Infineta DMS delivers unrivaled levels of throughput and scalability. The DMS serves as a critical building block for enterprises grappling with Big Traffic workflows such as high speed replication and remote backup, and cross-site storage and server virtualization, and Big Data.

With enterprise data sets reaching aggregate volumes in the 100s of terabytes to petabytes, and storage needs doubling every year, there is a dire need for scalable WAN optimization solutions to accelerate the large volumes of data being transferred between data centers.

Unlike other WAN optimization solutions, Infinetas DMS can reduce traffic footprints at multi-Gigabit speeds while incurring only microseconds of processing latency. The DMS is the only WAN optimization solution capable of supporting the next generation of advanced data center architectures. With the DMS, for example, customers can easily turn a 1Gbps WAN into a virtual 5Gbps link, leading to increased network throughput and guaranteed bandwidth availability. Not only is the DMS able to significantly improve the performance for all Big Traffic workflows traversing enterprise WAN networks, it is also a financially sound investment, with a typical return on investment in a sub-year timeframe.

We are very proud and honored that Storage Magazine and SearchStorage.coms panel of judges have recognized Infinetas flagship product, the DMS, and its capabilities, stated Haseeb Budhani, Vice President of Products at Infineta Systems. This recognition underscores the leadership approach Infineta has taken in understanding how enterprise IT strategies around data protection, virtualization and Big Data are leading to Big Traffic issues on the WAN, and how next-generation WAN optimization solutions can address these Big Traffic challenges.

Based in San Jose, California, Infineta Systems is a privately-held, leading provider of WAN optimization systems for Big Traffic. The companys patent-pending Velocity Dedupe Engine delivers unprecedented levels of throughput, scalability and bandwidth capacity to support critical machine-scale workflows across the data center interconnect.

big data demo At Intel’s Research & Innovation Forum 2011 we can across an demo that shows how huge amounts of data can be manipulated on mobile devices. They are revisiting traditional volume rendering techniques to provide excellent realism on platforms with high end CPUs and integrated graphics. Check out the mobile device using their advanced rendering technique to display streamed data. With more and more big data in the cloud finding ways to enable visualization of large, complex datasets on the new generation of mobile devices is important. The demo specifically how end users in the medical field can now use their smartphones or tablets to view tomography data in an operating theater.
