  • Join us on Thursday, April 16, 2015 at 11:00 AM PST/2:00 PM EST for this follow-up webinar to the Introduction to Apache Ignite(TM) (incubating) webinar, in which GridGain co-founder and EVP of Engineering and Ignite PMC Chair, Dmitriy Setrakyan will take a deep dive into several coding examples.
  • Ingesting raw data into Hadoop is easy, but extracting business value leveraging exploration tools is not. Hadoop is a file system without a data model, data quality, or data governance, making it difficult to find, understand and govern data.

    In this webinar, Tony Baer, Principal Analyst of Ovum Research, will address the gaps and offer best practices in the end-to-end process of discovering, wrangling, and governing data in a data lake. Tony Baer will be followed by Oliver Claude who will explain how Waterline Data Inventory automates the discovery of technical, business, and compliance metadata, and provides a solution to find, understand, and govern data.

    Attend this webinar if you are:
    --A big data architect who wants to inventory all data assets at the field level automatically while providing secure self-service to business users
    --A data engineer or data scientist who wants to accelerate data prep by finding and understanding the best suited and most trusted data
    --A Chief Data Officer or data steward who wants to be able to audit data lineage, protect sensitive data, and identify compliance issues
  • Here’s the good news. While the number of data sources organizations face is rapidly increasing, the cost to store data has never been cheaper. This trend – as well as big data technologies like Hadoop – has led to more valuable insights for organizations.

    But it’s also led to IT departments overburdened with requests from the business users they support. So where do we go from here?

    View this webinar that discusses data federation, a type of data virtualization that:

    • Provides a centralized governance and security layer.
    • Speeds the creation of virtual data views.
    • Makes it easier for business users to access the data they need.

    We’ll also demonstrate technologies like big data virtualization, federated data-as-a-service and data masking.
  • SAS® In-Memory Analytics is built for speed. It enables you to access unstructured and structured data and tackle complex analytical computations blazingly fast. But it doesn’t end there.

  • Drowning in Data and Starving for Information Recorded: Jan 8 2013 45 mins
    Stanley Zaffos - VP and Research Director, Gartner and Joey Jablonski - Practice Director, Analytic Services, DDN
    The ability to generate and capture various sensor data, communications, and imagery has grown exponentially, and there does not appear to be any change in sight. To effectively extract the maximum benefit from the deluge of data generated today, analysts need to utilize the new generation of analytical tools and human expertise that is rapidly being developed. When properly utilized, these advances are providing today’s analysts with an unprecedented ability to make real-time data-driven decisions as well as improved options to collaborate and share information. However, effective implementation in the era of hyperscale data depends on the ability to manage conventional system technology, and unpredictable volume requirements. An imbalanced analytics system can result in bottlenecks that reduce the value of analytics tools and the enterprise data warehouses (EDW) that power them. As such, it’s critical for organizations to ensure that at either end of the ingest/egest process they build scalable storage and storage processing technology to complement today’s high-speed data warehousing and data analytics technology. This session will detail how new filing system options and cloud infrastructure can improve the performance of analytics applications utilizing actual benchmark tests, and demonstrate new options to collaborate and share information.

  • Policy-Based Data Management, Integrated Rule Oriented Data Grid (iRODS) Recorded: Oct 12 2012 58 mins
    Dr. Reagan W. Moore - Director, Data Intensive Cyber-Environments
    Higher education institutions around the world are in the process of digitizing, indexing and adding searchable metadata to their digital collections. As these data sets expand to hundreds of millions of immutable objects and petabytes of data, there is a need to consolidate and automate to maximize the value of this capital expenditure.

    The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) is a popular open source policy-based data management system (application) that enables data sharing, publication and preservation and is also capable of implementing an automated data analysis pipeline. For each type of data management application, policies or rules can be applied that control the execution of procedures that enforce desired collection properties. By evolving the policies, a collection can migrate through the stages of the data life cycle.

    DataDirect Networks - Storage Fusion Architecture is a highly scalable storage platform capable of hosting iRODS in a tightly coupled solution with a RAID controller and parallel file system providing an appliance like solution that can scale to multiple-petabytes in a single name space.
