The Enterprise Data Hub

Data Masters and Big Data Folk!
Proudly supported by Cloudera APJ

February 6th we're back for another meetup and the first for 2014.


Topic of the Night - 'The Enterprise Data Hub' by Cloudera APJ

Sponsor of the night is Cloudera, Hadoop masters and all round champions!



Synopsis

This first talk starts out with an overview of the Enterprise Data Hub, what core components make up the Hub and how Enterprises can leverage Cloudera technology to Ask Bigger Questions

"An Enterprise Data Hub is one place to store all data, for as long as desired or required, in its original fidelity; integrated with existing infrastructure and tools; with the flexibility to run a variety of enterprise workloads — including batch processing, interactive SQL, enterprise search and advanced analytics — together with the robust security, governance, data protection, and management that enterprises require. With an Enterprise Data Hub, leading organizations are changing the way they think about data, transforming it from a cost to an asset."


The next talk starts out with an overview of Impala from the user's perspective, followed by a presentation of Impala's architecture and implementation. It concludes with a summary of Impala's benefits when compared with Apache Hive, commercial MapReduce alternatives, and traditional data warehouse infrastructure.

Impala: A Modern, Open Source SQL Engine for Hadoop, Wilfred Spiegelenburg ([masked])

"The Cloudera Impala project is pioneering the next generation of Hadoop capabilities: the convergence of fast SQL queries with the capacity, scalability, and flexibility of a Hadoop cluster. With Impala, the Hadoop community now has an open-sourced codebase that helps users query data stored in HDFS and Apache HBase in real time, using familiar SQL syntax. In contrast with other SQL-on-Hadoop initiatives, Impala's operations are fast enough to do interactively on native Hadoop data rather than in long-running batch jobs. Now you have the freedom to discover relationships and explore what-if scenarios on Big Data datasets. By taking advantage of Hadoop's infrastructure, Impala lets you avoid traditional data warehouse obstacles like rigid schema design and the cost of expensive ETL jobs. "

    If we don't have DW yet, can I say EDH would be an interim or smaller scale solution for that?

    February 14, 2014

    • Stuart H.

      I would say that EDH can become your corporate DW. It isn't interim or small scale. It's next generation and large scale (or can scale to be large). Ping me at [masked] if you want to discuss further.

    A great informative event and good opportunity to meet people with interests in data

    The talk about Impala was very interesting (great technology, if you ask me). Sadly, the first talk was mere marketing directed at CTO/managers, and it failed to let me understand what EDH is.

    February 7, 2014

    • Luca M.

      Hence, EDH is Cloudera's way to add value to the usual Hadoop stack, good to know. Surely EDH is an awesome piece of software, but that simple message got lost -for me at least- in the general hype. I would have appreciated more a talk explaining why EDH is better than a DIY assembly of the Hadoop stack.

      We shouldn't forget that a Data Hub is, primarily, a data architecture pattern, much as an Enterprise Service Bus is a messaging and service architecture pattern. Have a read of Malcolm Chisholm's excellent article on Data Hubs (from 2008!) - http://www.b-eye-netw...­. Without wanting to detract from an excellent product, I believe it's clever marketing by Cloudera to name their product offering after an architecture pattern.

    Also, not sure if anyone else would be interest in a more technical presentation... like a case:
    showing a live example including getting the data into hadoop and do all the processing/queries/etc...

    Not sure also if this can be done in our presentations.

    Cheers

      Hi Daniel, yes we can do a flume/sqoop demo in future. Impala covered data processing.

      February 7, 2014

    • daniel de s.

      Thanks Stu. That would be great...

    I've tried to download and run the Demo VM indicated last night but got errors.
    "Unable to issue query: could not connect to the Host Monitor"
    and when in Impala -> query:
    A server error has occurred. Send the following information to Cloudera.

    Cheers for the talk guys, the potential applications of the EDH are impressive to say the least - definitely a product I'll be giving some attention.

  • Andrew B.

    Hi Paul,
    I'm a bit of a noob on Hadoop/Impala - is there anything that you'd recommend reading / doing before attending?
    Cheers A

      Hi Staurt , I am newbie in Big data , but has got passionate somehow to thrive as big data analyst , is it ok to join such meet up having 0 background?

      January 20, 2014

    • Fernando P.

      Hi Andrew, also would be worthwhile buying a book called 'Hadoop Operations' and 'Hadoop - the Definitive Guide' are great books to start with down the path of your Hadoop journey. As Stu's mentioned, you'll learn a bit about Impala during the night.... look fwd to seeing you all there!!
