Organizations are increasingly experimenting with Hadoop, but spending too much time in configuration and maintenance. The difference in total cost between a custom-built Hadoop cluster and a production-ready, enterprise appliance are substantial.

Using Oracle Big Data Appliance as a model, this session will consider the challenges of designing a Hadoop appliance; the benefits of the appliance model; and the future functionality of pre-integrated Hadoop clusters.

Join Oracle’s Dan McClary and learn about the requirements for an enterprise Hadoop cluster, from networking and service layout to the automation of upgrades, installations, and security integration; and find out how a pre-integrated appliance can most efficiently deliver enterprise Hadoop needs.

This session is sponsored by Oracle
