During last month's Hadoop Summit, Armando Acosta moderated a Fireside Chat with Cloudera and Intel to discuss benchmarking, the ways to dramatically increase performance of a Hadoop cluster, and the performance tunings requiring changes to the BIOS, OS, Hadoop, and JVM configuration files.

Joining Armando were Bhaskar Gowda, from the Big Data Solution Group at Intel, and Yanpei Chen, with the Performance Team at Cloudera.
