Watch this on-demand webinar to learn about use cases for Big-Data-as-a-Service (BDaaS) – to jumpstart your journey with Hadoop, Spark, and other Big Data tools.
Enterprises in all industries are embracing digital transformation and data-driven insights for competitive advantage. But embarking on this Big Data journey is a complex undertaking and deployments tend to happen in fits and spurts. BDaaS can help simplify Big Data deployments and ensure faster time-to-value.
In this webinar, you'll hear about a range of different BDaaS deployment use cases:
-Sandbox: Provide data science teams with a sandbox for experimentation and prototyping, including on-demand clusters and easy access to existing data.
-Staging: Accelerate Hadoop / Spark deployments, de-risk upgrades to new versions, and quickly set up testing and staging environments prior to rollout.
-Multi-cluster: Run multiple clusters on shared infrastructure. Set quotas and resource guarantees, with logical separation and secure multi-tenancy.
-Multi-cloud: Leverage the portability of Docker containers to deploy workloads on-premises, in the public cloud, or in hybrid and multi-cloud architectures.
Watch this on-demand webinar to learn how separating compute from storage for Big Data delivers greater efficiency and cost savings.
Historically, Big Data deployments dictated the co-location of compute and storage on the same physical server. Data locality (i.e. moving computation to the data) was one of the fundamental architectural concepts of Hadoop.
But this assumption has changed – due to the evolution of modern infrastructure, new Big Data processing frameworks, and cloud computing. By decoupling compute from storage, you can improve agility and reduce costs for your Big Data deployment.
In this webinar, we discussed how:
- Changes introduced in Hadoop 3.0 demonstrate that the traditional Hadoop deployment model is changing
- New projects by the open source community and Hadoop distribution vendors give further evidence to this trend
- By separating analytical processing from data storage, you can eliminate the cost and risks of data duplication
- Scaling compute and storage independently can lead to higher utilization and cost efficiency for Big Data workloads
Learn how the traditional Big Data architecture is changing, and what this means for your organization.
