  • You may not know much about it, but Hadoop is coming in a big way. The list of services you provide and support grows larger by the day and very soon Hadoop related technologies will likely play a critical role in many of those services. Much of the processing that happens in Hadoop is batch related but the built in tools for managing that batch is inferior and will cause delays when trying to deploy the related applications and services. Join us to learn:

    •What Hadoop is and what it is used for
    •The type of processing performed in Hadoop environments
    •How to deliver better Hadoop workload related services

  • Catching the Big Data Wave with Object Storage Recorded: Mar 17 2011 54 mins
    While transactional data is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22%, it’s far outpaced by a 62% CAGR predicted for unstructured data in traditional data centers. By 2014, traditional unstructured data and the unstructured data in content depots are expected to account for 55% of a $31.9B market, according to IDC.

    The challenges of storing large, unstructured data (also known as "Big Data") sets are many. In this session, you will 1) learn about the key requirements for building global infrastructures for storing Big Data; 2) learn how you can store hundreds of millions of files or objects and many PBs of data in a single, global repository; 3) learn how to use object storage interfaces and object metadata to more intelligently manage data placement and retention. Participants are encouraged to view our Object Storage 101 webinar ahead of time to review.

  • Cloud Service Provider Basics Recorded: Feb 22 2011 60 mins
    In 2010, Gartner placed cloud computing just topping the peak of its emerging technology hype cycle. With many CIOs giving the mandate to investigate or begin to deploy cloud computing, 2011 could be the tipping point for cloud computing. With so many cloud service provider options available, identifying the service provider that best suits the needs of your enterprise can be challenging. In this webinar, we will discuss why choose a service provider (build, buy), how to choose one, and what you should expect from a cloud service provider.
What it means, why it matters, how you get there. Sponsored by NetApp.
Like cloud computing, cloud storage can provide massive economies of scale. You get more IT capacity for less money because the infrastructure is being shared across multiple clients or business units. Additionally, sharing resources enables agility, which translates into faster time to market.

If you are an enterprise, cloud computing sounds great in theory, but you are probably thinking “how do I get started?”

In this channel, we will feature industry thought leaders as well as NetApp speakers to explore moving enterprises to the cloud. Hint: It’s not a sprint, it’s a journey.
