Bare-metal performance for Big Data workloads on Docker containers


In a benchmark study, Intel compared the performance of Big Data workloads running on a bare-metal deployment versus running in Docker containers with the BlueData EPIC software platform. This in-depth study shows that performance ratios for container-based Hadoop workloads on BlueData EPIC are equal to and in some cases, better than bare-metal Hadoop.

This paper describes the software and hardware configurations for the benchmark tests, as well as details of the performance benchmark process and results.
