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!
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.
