Open Stack and Big Data - How and When?

  • January 30, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Happy new year! First off I want thank our new Sponsors Metacloud. They have generously provided us an additional location for our meet up in old town Pasadena (take note of the new location). In addition they have offered to provide drinks for this meet up! It's great to have sponsors involved both heavily in contributing technical resources to OpenStack, but also helping grow our Los Angeles tech community.

Recommended parking is at One Colorado: 24 E Union St, Pasadena, CA 91103 and is $6 flat fee after 5pm. Otherwise, take the metro gold line and get off at Memorial Park Station and the Metacloud office is in walking distance.

As always, if you have an interesting topic related to OpenStack, please reach out to me with the topic and we'll get a meet up scheduled for your talk! You'll be helping yourself in getting your ideas out, speaking skills and helping this community grow. If you know someone that has a great topic, please introduce me to them. Thanks guys!


Abstract:

This talk will provide insight into successfully getting a Big Data aka Hadoop running on Openstack. Moreover, the other key points of discussion are when and when not to run Hadoop in a cloud.  We will introduce how to leverage the Apache Bigtop project to build your Big Data on Openstack.  If time allows, we will do a quick live demo of Hadoop running on Openstack.


About the Speaker:

He has over a decade of experience in open source projects, as a founder of Scribus, project leader and was most recently an elected board member of the openSUSE Community Board.

    I'm currently checking on the discount code for SCALE 12x, should not take too long to get it for us.
    Definitely join us there. It is a great conference.
    Note, the FULL conference pass is only $70, and with 50% off it is worth it even if you only go for 1/2 a day. Also note, the full conference pass includes most of the Friday events as well. Tho do check as some have separate registration.

    Presentation needed more technical depth

    • Wes J.

      Agreed. I can't believe I sat through a talk on "Big Data", and when asked about MapReduce, the presenter shrugged it off saying it would "put us to sleep".

    Where can we park?

    January 29, 2014

    • Matti S

    January 30, 2014

    Has anyone actually clicked on the map or address link? 'Kinda funny. Choc-chip cookies at the Bowlmor! Not really very close to the real address: 117 E Colorado Bl....

    January 30, 2014

    • Mike P.

      That was a my bad in not figuring out how meet up wants me to enter address info. It's fixed now.

      January 30, 2014

    • Mike P.

      Luckily the address was still there for people type into google maps.

    Here's a new link for the Metacloud address... Also shows the cheapest parking option.

    The best deal for parking is 90-minutes FREE and only $2.00 for each hour after you've used up the free 90 minutes. The lot is called "Parking Concepts" and it's just a block away from Metacloud's office. The lot's official address is 33 E Green St, Pasadena, CA 91105. There are two entrances, one a block south of E. Colorado Blvd. on South Raymond Ave. (on the west, or right, side) and another off of Green Street, a block east of Fair Oaks Ave on the North side (left).

    I've created a map to help you find it.

    The Metro Gold Line is clearly another strong option ;)

    My name is Huseni Kathiria and I work with HP in their Cloud System group. I am in Los Angeles for couple of months and willing to attend the openStack Conference.

    Would it be okay to join the conference or Do I need to be registering somewhere to attend it ?

    1 · January 28, 2014

    • Huseni K.

      Thanks Arild for the suggestions. I think since I didn't know this, I just missed it. The RSVP button is now disabled. Is there any other way I can be allowed in conference by any chance ?

      January 29, 2014

    • Mike P.

      We're at capacity, but I will reach out to potentially attendees about verifying they will be here tonight. Waiting list is now available.

      1 · January 30, 2014

  • Mark C.

    RSVP is closed. Is it still possible to attend?

    I suspect it is a default of Meetup. That said I am looking forward to coming down and meeting the LA Openstackers.
