Making Big Data Cost Effective in a Bare Metal Cloud

Harold Hannon (SoftLayer)
Ballroom F

The cloud provides an easy onramp to building and deploying Big Data solutions, particularly the latest technologies that favor scale-out architectures. Transitioning from initial deployment to a large-scale, highly performant operation without breaking the bank may not be easy.

Understanding the benefits, weaknesses, and performance characteristics of public cloud and bare metal cloud deployments and their cost impacts can help you make the right decisions. The goal is to provide some insight into how to select the correct deployment strategy based on your Big Data application’s needs. This insight is based on our extensive testing while creating Big Data solutions on our bare metal cloud platform as well as various other virtualized deployment options. We will focus on real world deployment strategies and focus on the economic impacts of various deployment strategies at scale.
