    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

  • Implementing a Sparse Logistic Regression Algorithm in Apache Spark
    Implementing a Sparse Logistic Regression Algorithm in Apache Spark Lorand Dali, Data Scientist, Zalando Aug 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 39 mins
    This talk tells the story of implementation and optimization of a sparse logistic regression algorithm in spark. I would like to share the lessons I learned and the steps I had to take to improve the speed of execution and convergence of my initial naive implementation. The message isn’t to convince the audience that logistic regression is great and my implementation is awesome, rather it will give details about how it works under the hood, and general tips for implementing an iterative parallel machine learning algorithm in spark.

    The talk is structured as a sequence of “lessons learned” that are shown in form of code examples building on the initial naive implementation. The performance impact of each “lesson” on execution time and speed of convergence is measured on benchmark datasets.

    You will see how to formulate logistic regression in a parallel setting, how to avoid data shuffles, when to use a custom partitioner, how to use the ‘aggregate’ and ‘treeAggregate’ functions, how momentum can accelerate the convergence of gradient descent, and much more. I will assume basic understanding of machine learning and some prior knowledge of spark. The code examples are written in scala, and the code will be made available for each step in the walkthrough.

    Lorand is a data scientist working on risk management and fraud prevention for the payment processing system of Zalando, the leading fashion platform in Europe. Previously, Lorand has developed highly scalable low-latency machine learning algorithms for real-time bidding in online advertising.

  • RoCE vs. iWARP
    RoCE vs. iWARP Tim Lustig, Mellanox; Fred Zhang, Intel; John Kim, Mellanox Aug 22 2018 5:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Network-intensive applications, like networked storage or clustered computing, require a network infrastructure with high bandwidth and low latency. Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) supports zero-copy data transfers by enabling movement of data directly to or from application memory. This results in high bandwidth, low latency networking with little involvement from the CPU.

    In the next SNIA ESF “Great Storage Debates” series webcasts, we’ll be examining two commonly known RDMA protocols that run over Ethernet; RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) and IETF-standard iWARP. Both are Ethernet-based RDMA technologies that reduce the amount of CPU overhead in transferring data among servers and storage systems.

    The goal of this presentation is to provide a solid foundation on both RDMA technologies in a vendor-neutral setting that discusses the capabilities and use cases for each so that attendees can become more informed and make educated decisions.

    Join to hear the following questions addressed:

    •Both RoCE and iWARP support RDMA over Ethernet, but what are the differences?
    •Use cases for RoCE and iWARP and what differentiates them?
    •UDP/IP and TCP/IP: which uses which and what are the advantages and disadvantages?
    •What are the software and hardware requirements for each?
    •What are the performance/latency differences of each?

    Join our SNIA experts as they answer all these questions and more on this next Great Storage Debate
