Our Hex is your personal data center on your desk. It's a cluster of 6 computers with each a 4-core CPU, 2 GB of memory and 1TB hard disk drive. Times 6 = 24 cores for processing, 12GB of working memory and 6TB of data storage. That is quite some data processing power at your fingertips! Moreover, the Hex is fully pre-assembled and pre-installed for you. You only have to provide it with a network uplink and power and browse to our custom built management console to operate your Hex. The dashboard gives also access to our Tint library, which is like the appstore on your smartphone but for distributed technologies: with the click of a button you install Hadoop, Cassandra, ElasticSearch, etc. Next to technologies we also provide tutorials and publicly available datasets. Bootstrapping your next Big Data project really becomes as easy as 1-2-3: power your Hex, browse to the console and install your favourite technology. Within 1 hour of time you should be able to also install a dataset and build your first Big Data program, guided by any of the tutorials. From 0 to Big Data in 1 hour!
