Cisco @ Strata Conference + Hadoop World

Cisco is a Zettabyte sponsor at this week’s Strata Conference + Hadoop World in New York, NY, October 28-30.

Everyone’s talking about big data, but who’s actually doing it right—and how? Find out at Strata + Hadoop World, where big data’s most influential decision makers, architects, developers, and analysts gather to shape the future of their businesses. If you want to tap into the opportunities brought by big data, data science, and pervasive computing, you’ll want to be there too.

Stop by the Cisco Booth and please attend our breakout session:
“Deeper Insight into Operational Big Data Clusters”, delivered by Samuel Kommu, Cisco Technical Marketing Engineer
Wednesday at 1:45pm. Check here for more details.

We will showcase how our Cisco Nexus, UCS and our workload automation solutions--all configured specifically for Hadoop-- that enable rapid deployment, predictable performance, and massive scale to help you get the most value from your big data deployments.

Hadoop in the Enterprise Data Center

A little over a month ago we had a chance to present as session in conjunction with Eric Sammer of Cloudera on Designing Hadoop for the Enterprise Data Center and findings at Strata + Hadoop World 2012 .

Taking a look back, we started this initiative back in early 2011 as the demand for Hadoop was on the rise and we began to notice a lot of confusion from our customers on what Hadoop would mean to their Data Center Infrastructure. This lead us to our first presentation at Hadoop World 2011 where we shared an extensive testing effort with the goal of characterizing what happens when you run a Hadoop Map/Reduce job. Further, we illustrated how different network and compute considerations would change these characteristics. As Hadoop deployment gained tracking in enterprise, we found a need of developing network reference architecture for Hadoop. This lead us to another round of testing concluded earlier this year and presented at Hadoop Summit, which examined what happened when looking at design considerations such as architectures, availability, capacity, scale and management.

Finally this brings us to last month and our presentation at Strata + Hadoop World 2012. We met with Cloudera in the months leading up to the event and discussed what we could share to the Hadoop community. We discussed all the previous rounds of testing and came to the conclusion that along with a combination of customer experiences and another round of testing that examined Multi-tenant environments we could put together a talk that really addressed the fundamental design considerations of Hadoop in the Enterprise Data Center.
