  • DeepStorage Test Drive: Tegile IntelliFlash T4000AFA
    DeepStorage Test Drive: Tegile IntelliFlash T4000AFA Howard Marks Founder and Chief Scientist Deepstorage; Gokul Sathiacama, Director, Product Marketing, Data Center Systems Recorded: Jun 19 2018 46 mins
    DeepStorage Labs is known in the storage industry for pushing equipment to its limits, and for reporting what really happens at the edge of a system’s performance. Tegile’s IntelliFlash T4000, unlike a few previous occupants of the DeepStorage Labs ThunderDome, stood up to our testing and delivered high IOPS at a maximum of 1MS latency.

    DeepStorage subjected the InteliFlash T4000 workloads from the usual 4KB “hero number” random read to workloads that simulate OLTP and OLAP database servers, a file server and an Exchange server. We determined the systems performance individually and in combination finally determining the system’s ability to support the kind of mixed workload environment

    In this webinar we will:
    - Introduce the IntelliFlash array
    - Describe the testing process
    - Present the results
    - Review the test environment
    - Provide links to the test workload VDbench configurations

  • Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge
    Top 5 Pitfalls of Developing and Deploying Smart Applications at the Edge Desmond Tan, Senior Director, Zen Product Engineering, Actian Jun 20 2018 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Efforts to derive value from Edge Computing and IoT continue to grow.

    In addition to the multitude of PoCs taking place in the Cloud, scaled up implementations are increasingly looking at local persistent data and the underlying device and gateway technologies that are evolving to accommodate this new design requirement. Central to this shift is the growth of developer communities around Android, iOS, embedded Linux and Windows, Intel/ARM and others, driving a surge of new applications with locally managed and analyzed data on IoT/OT edge devices and gateways.

    Considerations for metadata management, data movement, security, and governance of data associated with these apps, overhead for processing and packaging, and security concerns will require on-device and gateway persistent storage. Flat file systems and other prior tools don’t meet modern embedded data management platform or analytics requirements.

    Join us to hear how to deliver persistent data management at the edge.

    - Avoid the hassle and security complications that ETL between things, gateways and datacenters will create.
    - Experience a real-world demo in Python with source code samples showing how you can code once and deploy to multiple target platforms.

  • Designed for Speed: Providence Health Plan's Enterprise Data Management Roadmap
    Designed for Speed: Providence Health Plan's Enterprise Data Management Roadmap Jaydeep Ghosh, Director of Data Services, Providence Health Plan & Monica Mullen, Solutions Marketing Manager, Informatica Jun 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Providence Health Plan has grown organically over the last 30+ years. With the adoption of the Affordable Care Act as well as growth in other lines of business, the organization was at a crossroad. As new applications and vendors were introduced into the ecosystem to respond to the business’s need, system complexity had increased substantially. The result was a data management challenge that would limit ongoing business success if it remained unsolved.

    Join Jaydeep Ghosh, Director of Data Services at Providence Health Plan, and Monica Mullen, Principal Solutions Marketing Manager at Informatica, as they discuss the enterprise data roadmap that the organization put together to address the current state, position the health plan for future growth, and address these top challenges:

    • Time to business value
    • Multiple, but incomplete, versions of the truth
    • Overall lack of trust in data
  • Using Data Science to Build an End-to-End Recommendation System
    Using Data Science to Build an End-to-End Recommendation System Ambarish Joshi and Jeff Kelly, Pivotal Jun 21 2018 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    We get recommendations everyday: Facebook recommends people we should connect with; Amazon recommends products we should buy; and Google Maps recommends routes to take. What all these recommendation systems have in common are data science and modern software development.

    Recommendation systems are also valuable for companies in industries as diverse as retail, telecommunications, and energy. In a recent engagement, for example, Pivotal data scientists and developers worked with a large energy company to build a machine learning-based product recommendation system to deliver intelligent and targeted product recommendations to customers to increase revenue.

    In this webinar, Pivotal data scientist Ambarish Joshi will take you step-by-step through the engagement, explaining how he and his Pivotal colleagues worked with the customer to collect and analyze data, develop predictive models, and operationalize the resulting insights and surface them via APIs to customer-facing applications. In addition, you will learn how to:

    - Apply agile practices to data science and analytics.
    - Use test-driven development for feature engineering, model scoring, and validating scripts.
    - Automate data science pipelines using pyspark scripts to generate recommendations.
    - Apply a microservices-based architecture to integrate product recommendations into mobile applications and call center systems.
