The Elephant in the Cloud - Bring the Power of Hadoop and the Cloud Together

  • Dec 4, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • Gemini Systems LLC



The massive computing and storage resources that are needed to support big data deployments in general, and Hadoop in particular, make cloud environments, public and private, an ideal fit.

Managing your big data app, however, is no walk in the park - especially when considering the fact that these systems and application stacks often include other services beyond Hadoop such as: relational databases, other NoSQL databases and more, where each framework comes with its own management, installation, configuration, and scaling solutions.  This is where Cloudify for BigInsights fits in.  Together these provide consistent management that makes the provisioning, deployment, and scaling of your Hadoop system simple and consistent with the rest of your stack.  What’s more, it enables cloud portability between bare-metal and public cloud offering for Hadoop making it possible to run your system on the right cloud for the job—public/virtualized environment for on-demand workloads and bare-metal for I/O intensive operations.

Come see how large-scale big data distributions can be easily ported and managed consistently across andy cloud.
