There’s little doubt that Hadoop will soon be a vital tool in the IT toolbox. But as Big Data frameworks take hold in the enterprise, what do data center operators need to know? Multi-tenancy, network topology, workload types, and myriad other factors affect the way data centers handle large processing tasks. Processors, frameworks, and the underlying network all need to work hand-in-hand to achieve the promises Big Data Makes.

In this joint session, experts from Cisco and Cloudera reveal the fundamental design considerations of Hadoop in the Enterprise Data Center. Drawing from lessons learned in the real world, they’ll share best practices from deployments of Cloudera’s Hadoop distribution alongside Cisco’s networking components. Attendees will learn how Cisco Systems eases Hadoop deployment, giving IT professionals efficient, scalable topologies that let information flow seamlessly between enterprise data repositories.
