VMware PEX: CAS1287 Big Data Virtualized: Simple, Reliable, Elastic Hadoop

Hadoop and virtualization are two of the hottest trends in the industry today, yet the full potential for bringing the two together has yet to be realized. Virtualization can be brought to bear to alleviate common Hadoop challenges, such as cluster deployment, reliability, and inefficient resource utilization. Learn how partners can leverage VMware technology to make Hadoop more accessible for their clients and add value at the intersection of Hadoop and virtualization. In this session, we will discuss Serengeti and vFabric Data Director, VMware, open-source and commercial offerings, respectively, which enable the deployment and management of virtual Hadoop clusters. We highlight several real-life examples where organizations have successfully deployed Hadoop on vSphere. We will demonstrate how Hadoop clusters can be provisioned simply and rapidly, how to customize and configure the virtual Hadoop clusters, and how the single points of failure in the Hadoop stack can be easily protected using vSphere HA. We will describe how Hadoop compute and data layers can be decoupled in a virtual environment, such that compute capacity on virtual Hadoop clusters can be scaled on demand. Leveraging virtualization, customers and partners can achieve their goal of providing elastic, multi-tenant Hadoop as a service. vmwarepex2013.activeevents.com
