  • The Role of FPGAs in SparK Accelerators Recorded: Aug 29 2016 61 mins
    Shreyas Shah, Principal Data center Architect, Xilinx
    In the cloud computing era, data growth is exponential. Every day billions of photos are shared and large amount of new data created in multiple formats. Within this cloud of data, the relevant data with real monetary value is small. To extract the valuable data, big data analytics frame works like SparK is used. This can run on top of a variety of file systems and data bases. To accelerate the SparK by 10-1000x, customers are creating solutions like log file accelerators, storage layer accelerators, MLLIB (One of the SparK library) accelerators, and SQL accelerators etc.

    FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) are the ideal fit for these type of accelerators where the workloads are constantly changing. For example, they can accelerate different algorithms on different data based on end users and the time of the day, but keep the same hardware.

    This webinar will describe the role of FPGAs in SparK accelerators and give SparK accelerator use cases.
  • Design Fast Data Architecture for Big Data with Logical Data Warehouse & Lakes Recorded: Aug 24 2016 56 mins
    Kurt Jackson, Platform Lead, Autodesk
    A Case Study presented by Kurt Jackson, Platform Lead, Autodesk

    Companies such as Autodesk are fast replacing the once-true- and-tried physical data warehouses with logical data warehouses/ data lakes. Why? Because they are able to accomplish the same results in 1/6 th of the time and with 1/4 th of the resources.

    In this webinar, Autodesk’s Platform Lead, Kurt Jackson,, will describe how they designed a modern fast data architecture as a single unified logical data warehouse/ data lake using data virtualization and contemporary big data analytics like Spark.

    Logical data warehouse / data lake is a virtual abstraction layer over the physical data warehouse, big data repositories, cloud, and other enterprise applications. It unifies both structured and unstructured data in real-time to power analytical and operational use cases.

    Attend and Learn:

    -Why logical data warehouse/ data lakes are the bedrock of modern data architecture
    -How you can build a logical data warehouse using data virtualization
    -How to create a single, unified enterprise-wide access and governance point for any data used within the company
