Dotting the I’s with Hadoop on Eseries

Sponsored Sessions Ballroom G

To address SLA and capacity limitations in NetApp’s phone-home processing, NetApp kicked off a program to implement a Hadoop-based solution on NetApp’s E-Series storage. The solution is built to handle 2-5 TB/week of incoming data, and address multiple use cases – real-time data access, aggressive processing SLAs for transactions, standard reporting, data mining, data augmentation and distribution. This session will discuss the history of the problem, the technical architecture of the solution, and how Pentaho is used to address the challenges these disparate use cases pose for Hadoop alone. Takeaways will include recommendations for success with Pentaho in a Hadoop-based big data solution.
