  • Modern Data Engineering and The Rise of Apache Airflow
    Modern Data Engineering and The Rise of Apache Airflow Prateek Shrivastava, Principal Product Manager, Qubole Recorded: Sep 11 2018 48 mins
    Storage and compute are cheaper than ever. As a result, data engineering is undergoing a generational shift and is no longer defined by star-schema modeling techniques on data warehouses. Further, downstream operations are not just BI reporting and now include emerging use-cases such as data science. This means that modern day ETL tools should be dynamic, scalable, and extensible enough to handle complex business logic.

    Airflow provides that level of abstraction today’s Data Engineers need. The Qubole Data Platform provides single-click deployment of Apache Airflow, automates cluster and configuration management, and includes dashboards to visualize the Airflow Directed Acyclic Graphs (DAGs).

    In this webinar we will cover:
    - A brief Introduction to Apache Airflow and its optimal use cases
    - How to remove the complexity of spinning up and managing the Airflow cluster
    - How to Scale out horizontally with multi-node Airflow cluster
    - Real-world customer examples
  • Deep Learning with TensorFlow on Qubole
    Deep Learning with TensorFlow on Qubole Piero Cinquegrana, Sr. Data Science Product Manager, Qubole Recorded: Sep 4 2018 43 mins
    Deep learning works on large volumes of unstructured data such as human speech, text, and images to enable powerful use cases such as speech-to-text transcription, voice identification, image classification, facial or object recognition, analysis of sentiment or intent from text, and many more. In the last few years, TensorFlow has become a very popular deep learning framework for image recognition and speech detection use cases.

    All deep learning methods, including TensorFlow, require large volumes of data to train the model. Today, the most significant challenge in deep learning is the ever-increasing training time — as models get more complicated, the size of training data continues to increase. In order to address this challenge, cloud providers have launched instance types with many graphics processing units (GPUs) in a single node. However, using all of the GPUs in a single training job is not trivial. Qubole’s TensorFlow engine has been built to run on distributed Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) on Amazon Web Services.

    In this webinar we will:

    - Discuss how Qubole has achieved single-node, multi-GPU parallelization using native Tensorflow and Keras with Tensorflow as a backend.
    - Present results from our studies that show how training time varies with the number of GPUs in the cluster.
    - Run through a demo of a TensorFlow use case on Qubole.
  • The Power of Presto for Analytics and Business Intelligence (BI)
    The Power of Presto for Analytics and Business Intelligence (BI) Goden Yao, Principal Product Manager at Qubole Recorded: Aug 30 2018 49 mins
    Presto is a distributed ANSI SQL engine designed for running interactive analytics queries. Presto outshines other data processing engines when used for business intelligence (BI) or data discovery because of its ability to join terabytes of unstructured and structured data in seconds, or cache queries intermittently for a rapid response upon later runs. Presto can also be used in place of other well known interactive open source query engine such as Impala, Hive or traditional SQL data warehouses.

    Qubole Presto, a cloud-optimized version of open source Presto, allows for dynamic cluster sizing based on workload, and terminates idle clusters — ensuring high reliability while reducing compute costs. Qubole customers use Presto along with their favorite BI tools, including PowerBI, Looker, Tableau, or any ODBC- and JDBC-compliant BI tool, to explore data and run queries.

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:
    - Why Presto is better suited for ad-hoc queries than other engines like Apache Spark
    - How to jumpstart analysts across your organization to harness the power of your big data
    - How to generate interactive or ad hoc queries or scheduled reports using Qubole and Presto
    - Real-world examples of companies using Presto

  • Introduction to Qubole: A Data Platform Built To Scale
    Introduction to Qubole: A Data Platform Built To Scale Mohit Bhatnagar, SVP of Product at Qubole Recorded: Aug 23 2018 57 mins
    Many companies today struggle to balance their users’ demands for data with the cost of scaling their data operations. As the volume, variety, and velocity of data grows, data teams are getting overwhelmed and traditional infrastructure is being pushed to the brink.

    In this webinar, Qubole SVP of Product Mohit Bhatnagar will share how Qubole’s cloud-native platform helps companies scale their data operations, activate petabytes of data, and reach administrator-to-user ratios as high as 1:200 (compared to ratios of 1:20 with other platforms).

    He’ll also share how Qubole customers like Lyft, Under Armour and Turner use our cloud-native platform and multiple open source engines to run their big data workloads more efficiently and cost-effectively, as well as how the cloud helps them rapidly scale operations while simultaneously reduce their overall big data costs.

  • Speed to Value: How To Justify Your Big Data Investments
    Speed to Value: How To Justify Your Big Data Investments Amit Duvedi, VP of Business Value Engineering, Qubole Recorded: Aug 15 2018 55 mins
    Every investment in big data, whether people or technology, should be measured by how quickly it generates value for the business. While big data uses cases may vary, the need to prioritize investments, control costs and measure impact is universal.

    Like most CTOs, CIOs, VPs or Directors overseeing big data projects, you’re likely somewhere in between putting out fires and demonstrating how your big data projects are driving growth. If your focus, for example, is improving your users’ experience you need to be able to demonstrate a clear ROI in the form of higher customer retention or lifetime value.

    However, in addition to driving growth, you’re also responsible for managing costs. Here’s the rub-- if you’re successful in driving growth, your big data costs will only go up. That’s the consequence of successful big data use cases. How then, when you have success, do you limit and manage rising cloud costs?

    In this webinar, you’ll learn:

    - How to measure business value from big data use cases
    - Typical bottlenecks that delay time to value and ways to address them
    ​- Strategies for managing rising cloud and people costs
    - How best-in-class companies are generating value from big data use cases while also managing their costs
  • Moving Big Data To The Cloud? Here’s Why You Need A Cloud-Native Data Platform
    Moving Big Data To The Cloud? Here’s Why You Need A Cloud-Native Data Platform Matheen Raza and Kevin Blaisdell from Qubole Recorded: Jul 27 2018 29 mins
    Cloud service models have become the new norm for enterprise deployments in almost every category — and big data is no exception. As the volume, variety, and velocity of data increase exponentially, the cloud offers a more efficient and cost-effective option for managing the unpredictable and bursty workloads associated with big data compared to traditional on-premises data centers.

    Organizations looking to scale their big data projects and implement a data-driven business culture can do so with greater ease on the cloud. However, adopting a cloud deployment model requires a cloud-first re-architecture and a platform approach rather than a simple lift and shift of data applications and pipelines.

    A cloud-native data platform like Qubole helps organizations save on average 50 percent in total cost of ownership. Intelligent automation of cluster management tasks allows data teams to focus on business outcomes, thereby greatly improving SLAs and the end-user experience.

    ​Join experts from Qubole as they discuss how to activate your big data and get the most out of open source technologies on the cloud. In this webinar, you'll learn:

    - How big data projects benefit from a cloud-native data platform
    - How intelligent cluster management can help you save in total cost of ownership
    - About companies that successfully transitioned their big data to the cloud
    - How to evaluate cloud data platforms for your big data needs
