One of the most exciting, yet challenging opportunities companies face today is related to data. Every year, they have to deal with about 40% more data than the year before. How does your organization take advantage and make sense of this exponentially growing resource?
Hortonworks and Cisco have been partnering to help you build massively scalable big data solutions that expand with your needs and provide you with an industry-leading platform for Hadoop-based applications.
Fully tested and certified, the Cisco UCS solution for HDP is based on UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data, a highly scalable and efficient architecture designed to meet the demands of rapidly growing big data environments with cohesive data integration and powerful management-automation capabilities. With Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure for Big Data, we have helped enterprises smoothly integrate Hadoop with their computing, networking, and storage resources to run Hadoop clusters.
Why do I love Big Data so much? It’s because there are endless possibilities to deliver on the Internet of Everything (IoE) opportunity that will create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunities for businesses, countries, and individuals. Analytics is an enormous part of that value creation and is estimated to drive $7.3T of the $19T IoE opportunity over the next 10 years.
Big Data and Analytics take the data created by people, processes, and things – that’s held within the Data Center and at the Edge – and convert it to insights that deliver the truly transformational business outcomes for which we all strive. I’m not talking about ‘iterative’ changes here. I’m talking about game-changing breakthroughs that change the way businesses compete, healthcare teams treat their patients, and cities and governments meet the needs of their constituents.
Cisco has incredible Connected Analytics offerings that address the needs of data streaming at the edge. These offerings are complemented by solutions based on Cisco UCS Integrated Infrastructure and broad ecosystem of Big Data & Analytics Partners.
Microsoft and Cisco have been committed to deliver the value of Application Centric Infrastructure to Microsoft users since the announcement of ACI. This video from Brad Anderson, Microsoft CVP, Windows Server and System Center demonstrates the value Microsoft sees in ACI since.
Convention Center in Orlando, Florida and our bench is packed this year.
