What you'll learn

  • Learn architecture best practices for big data deployments from Dell EMC


Designing, architecting, and deploying a big data platform using Hadoop is a critical responsibility for analytics practitioners and their IT business partners, but getting it right still feels like a bit of dark magic. Cory Minton pulls back the covers on how big data applications impact underlying hardware based on real-world deployments and shares Dell EMC’s internal testing and benchmarking used to develop its architecture best practices. Along the way, Cory shows you how to get your architecture right the first time for optimal performance and scaling.
