After a great Future of Data Roadshow in Amsterdam, it's time to kick off the meetup series. This time we have speakers from Microsoft and Hortonworks lined up to discuss Hadoop deployments in the Cloud.
We thank Microsoft for kindly hosting us in their fabulous office near Schiphol Airport, and also for taking care of catering and drinks.
18:00 - Arrive, drink, eat
18:45 - Presentations
We will have two presentations:
1. Leveraging Hortonworks Data Flow for IoT projects in the Azure Cloud
Jorn Eilander, ING; and Hellmar Becker, Hortonworks
Jorn is a seasoned DevOps engineer at ING Bank who specialized in Hadoop datalake deployment; in his free time he likes to automate his home. Hellmar is a solutions engineer and evangelist at Hortonworks. Together, they have been working on IoT projects for a while.
The talk shows how to connect sensors (that can be tiny embedded devices) to a resilient ingestion layer that is accessible in the cloud. Sensor flows can be configured in the HDF GUI and deployed on the edge devices with the new MiNiFi agent. The cloud service ingests all the input and uses HDP for powerful historical analysis.
2. Introduction to HDInsight
Ahmed Mostafa, Microsoft
With the same demonstration environment, Ahmed will be showing the possibilities that Microsoft is offering out of the box for Hadoop along with the analytics services surrounding the ecosystem.
20:30 - Drinks and Networking
21:00 - Everybody out
