Make the Elephant Fly: How to make Hadoop 10x faster in 10 minutes

Big data doesn't have to be slow. Now that you have identified and possibly even built functional Hadoop based big data applications that could deliver big value to your organizations, how can you easily make them work at operational speeds in production? Come listen in as Taneja Group Sr. Analyst Mike Matchett interviews Nikita Ivanov, CTO of GridGain, on why in-memory solutions for Hadoop can make all the difference for big data success. We'll explore what they do and how they work to speed up processing, how easy or hard they are to deploy and get working in the data center, and what the net impact can be. We'll also hope to talk about commercial vs. open source in the big data space, and what that means for the analytical community at large.

Proven ROI for Internet of Things (Iot) Data Center Infrastructure Market

Internet of Things (IoT) is a hot trend in today’s economy of  connected devices. Every high-tech device in the data center industry – storage, servers, switches, application software, or any appliance – generates copius amounts of machine data that can be analyzed to help the manufacturer gain operational and strategic insights. These insights assist in reducing costs to support customers by lowering mean time to resolution (MTTR) per case.  They also enable manufacturers to build and sell specific value add services to their customers with the objective of being proactive, predictive and prescriptive in front of their top enterprise accounts.  Finally, deep insights can be gleaned off this kind of machine data analytics, if done the right way, to funnel strategic information onto future product roadmaps.  All of these benefits are very quantifiable if there is a solution like Glassbeam in place in such markets.

This webinar will discuss the right elements of such a solution, lay out the foundation of ROI with specific benefits, and discuss a case study with a Fortune 100 account of Glassbeam.
