IoT Goes Real-Time, Gets Predictive - Glassbeam Launches Spark-based Machine Learning

In-Memory processing was all the rage at Strata 2014 NY last month, and the hottest word was Spark! Spark is big data scale-out cluster solution that provides a way to speedily analyze large data sets in-memory using a “resilient distributed data” design for fault-tolerance.  It can deploy into its own optimized cluster, or ride on top of Hadoop 2.0 using YARN… I haven’t done justice to Spark itself and perhaps its biggest onrushing use case - taming the real-time data from from the Internet of Things (IoT)...

GridGain Turns Over In-Memory Platform To Apache As Ignite Project

Recently I wrapped up a report on GridGain’s In Memory Hadoop acceleration in which I explored how leveraging memory can vastly improve the production performance of many Hadoop MapReduce jobs, and even tackle streaming use cases without re-writing them or implementing newer streaming paradigms. GridGain drops into existing Hadoop environments without much fuss, so it’s an easy add-on/upgrade. Now GridGain has just transferred the core in-memory platform over to Apache Software Foundation as the newly accepted Apache incubator Ignite project, completely contributed to the community at large.

A Shift To Enterprise Features For Big Data Solutions: Notes from Strata/Hadoop World NY 2014

I had a blast last week at Strata/Hadoop World NY 2014. I got a real sense that the mass of big data sponsors/vendors are finally focusing on what it takes to get big data solutions into production operations. In fact, in one of the early keynotes it was noted that the majority of the attendees were implementing software engineers and not necessarily analytical data scientists. Certainly there was no shortage of high profile use cases bandied about and impressive sessions on advanced data science, but on the show floor much of the talk was about making big data work in real world data centers… I’ll certainly be diving into many of these topics more deeply, but here is a not-so-brief roundup of major themes culled from the 20+ sponsors I met with at the show:...

Connected Data Brings Transporter to Businesses With Genesis Appliance

Ok, who here has used their free Dropbox (or similar) account not just at home but at work? Turns out that most of us do that can get away with it…. As a problem for us end users - who here has run into the edge of their free file sharing account and wondered if they are going to be held hostage to paying $99+/yr for the rest of their life?... As enterprises wanted in on the Transporter “plug and play and we are done” approach to this problem, Connected Data today is announcing their Transporter Genesis appliance. Basically it’s a big brother that comes in a rack mount form holding up to 48TB. They’ve also added corporate-scale features….

BlueData: Big Data Analysis Clouds on Enterprise Data Where it Already Lives

“Taneja predicted that 2014 would be the year of virtualized Big Data computing and BlueData is proving that out,” said Mike Matchett, senior analyst and consultant at Taneja Group. “BlueData essentially virtualizes scale-out computing, turning a physical cluster into a Big Data cloud platform with elastic provisioning and policy-driven management. Best of all, BlueData helps companies leverage their Big Data wherever it currently exists, wherever it is, and streams it in with performance boosting technologies to the self-provisioning Hadoop/NoSQL cloud. With this leap, companies of all sizes can now readily make progress on broader, more aggressive Big Data visions.”  ....
