Deploying your Big Data App on OpenStack, with guest Uri Cohen


The massive computing and storage resources that are needed to support big data applications make cloud environments an ideal fit.

In this session, you'll learn how to build your big data "database on-demand" using MongoDB, Cassandra, Solr, MySQL, or any other big data solution, as well as manage your big data application using a new open source framework called “Cloudify.”

All this, on top of the OpenStack cloud.









Uri is responsible for everything product related at GigaSpaces, and leads the definition and execution of the company’s product strategy.

He has been with the company for the past five years, serving in a variety of customer facing and technology roles from solutions architect through technology evangelist.

Uri is a frequent speaker at industry conferences, covering cloud computing, space-based architecture, NoSQL, big data, and distributed computing.

He has over 11 years of technology leadership experience, specializing in middleware and cloud technologies such as JEE, Spring, XTP, and distributed computing.

    Hi Denis
    Thanks, glad you liked it.
    You can find an initial comparison here, also includes other PaaS vendors:
    I'd say that Cloudify and CF are both good tools but approach things from a different perspective. CF is more developer centric and as such is very easy to use and push code to. Cloudify is centered around more complex apps and caters much better for flexibility using recipes & cloud independence.
    Ping me at uri at gigaspaces dot com for more details.

    Great presentation.. I would have liked to see how Cloudify compares to Cloud Foundry (and the new BOSH deployment tool), OpenShift, etc...

    Solid and relevant presentation for the attendees. Professional setup yet casual environment that stimulated some interesting Q/A afterwards.
