Are you considering Hadoop in the cloud? Are you currently facing big data challenges? Are you looking for tools to make your big data operation more efficient? In this webinar, Matt Aslett of 451 Research and Ashish Thusoo of Qubole (founder of Apache Hive) will outline the benefits of Hadoop implementation, examine common use cases for big data projects of various size and scope, and explain how Hadoop-as-a-Service removes complexity while adding much-needed functionality.

What you'll learn:

  • Drivers behind the adoption of Hadoop, including interest in running Hadoop in the cloud
  • Explore the cost and utilization implications of running Hadoop on the cloud versus on-premises
  • 5 best practices to consider when deploying Hadoop infrastructure in the cloud – by Ashish Thusoo, who ran Facebook's big data infrastructure team for several years.
  • Barriers to adoption for Hadoop-as-a-service and how they are being overcome by the emergence of new managed service offerings and providers.
  • What Big Data-as-a-Service means, and how it allows you to focus on data analysis and monetization (and less on infrastructure).
