Enterprises are generating and consuming large amounts of data all across the globe. Storage and analytics are no longer confined to one datacenter. Enterprises demand more from Hadoop in terms of access, storage, performance and protection.

This session focuses on strategies and technologies you can use to build a global Hadoop cloud with geo-distributed access and protection for analytics in various use-cases like IoT – handling billions of small files or multi-terabyte files in the same system.
