TGIF @ Scalar Labs - Hadoop 101 - Sep 28 2012

Enterprises today collect and generate more data than ever before. Business users ask more sophisticated questions and need to explore data in more detail and over longer time frames than traditional BI solutions allow. They must combine a variety of data from many sources and extract real, actionable information and insight from it quickly.

Hadoop makes this possible.

Hadoop is useful for organizations managing massive amounts of structured, semi-structured, or unstructured data, who wish to intelligently and efficiently store, process, and analyze that data to answer questions traditional BI solutions won't, or can't do cost effectively.

In this session, we will cover:

  • What is Hadoop?
  • What types of problems can I solve with Hadoop?
  • Components of the Hadoop Ecosystem
  • Architecture overview of a typical deployment
  • Sample use cases

You'll also get a live Demonstration of our Cloudera Hadoop Demo Cluster, including job execution over sample datasets.

What is TGIF@ScalarLabs?

TGIF@ScalarLabs is an interactive monthly session for a technical audience.

By attending you will learn about how the combination of technologies can make your life easier:

  • snapshot and replication tools can increase your productivity and empower end users
  • virtualization will enable you to better serve your user and business stakeholders
  • squeeze the most performance out of the WAN bandwidth you already have
  • getting more storage bang for your buck
  • using 10GB and converged networks to reduce your cabling headache
  • getting the most out of the network you are stuck with
  • why using multiple tools for backup recovery archiving and dedupe isn't the only option
  • figuring out where your security issues are.

As a systems, networking or storage professional, you are obligated to meet rapidly increasing capacity and reliability requirements, while minimizing complexity, and simplifying management. And you must do so in a business environment where shrinking IT budgets are forcing you to do more with less.

By attending these sessions you will see how your peers are solving their toughest issues while saving time and money.
