The BigData at Polito project is a joint research laboratory established among four departments of Politecnico di Torino.
The mission of the BigData@Polito laboratory is to provide an opportunity to exploit computing capabilities offered by Big Data technologies. The laboratory offers the opportunity to access and experience on a Big Data Cluster, running state of art software. The access is open to all researchers, from any areas, that are interested in using and getting their hands on Big Data computing technologies, paving the way for collaborations between research centers, companies and external institutions.
The laboratory BigData at Polito has as objective the creation of a computing cluster based on Hadoop technologies, in particular on the distribution offered by Cloudera, an Open Source framework that implements the functionality for Big Data systems and it allows to create data centers able to scale up to thousands of nodes and petabytes of data.
