|AMD Showcases Jagex Gaming Studios Big Data Implementation|
"As a leading games company, Jagex needed to update their data center as they had outgrown their traditional cluster which was limiting their analytics capability. Jagex required a flexible, cost-effective and dense solution which was fulfilled by AMD's SeaMicro SM15000e server and Apache™ Hadoop® deployment," said
With the SeaMicro SM15000e server, Jagex Studios realized the following performance results:
The transformative waves of big data are changing everything about storage and Hadoop has emerged as the key application to help companies gain insights that were previously unattainable. As Hadoop becomes more mainstream, factors such as ease of deployment, scalability and operational considerations are becoming just as important as pure performance.
Redesigning the data center with Hadoop deployment on the SeaMicro SM15000e server and leveraging the SeaMicro Freedom™ fabric allows disaggregation of compute, storage and networking to build right sized computing and storage nodes optimized for Jagex's applications. The simplicity of replacing two racks of servers with a single chassis was a key benefit of the SM15000e that Jagex desired. Additionally, the ability to analyze big data allows Jagex to refine their outreach to their users more effectively through in-game, social media and direct mail profiles.
"Our data analysts and scientists are able to produce really rich insights that allow us to make better business decisions that are more profitable and fun for our players," said
