Are you ready to build a data infrastructure that will support your organization’s analytics efforts, but find yourself with more questions than answers on where to start? What should this architecture look like? Should we consider cloud or an on-premises data center? Analytics or neural networks?

Attend this session, an all-day course focused on architectural designs and topics including modern infrastructures, GPU, memory, storage, cluster scalability to thousands of nodes and management, Lambda architecture for streaming analytics, and data life cycle management with HDFS tiered storage. Learn about different approaches for multitenant Hadoop cluster deployments with Openstack, Cloudera, and MapR, and workload automation topics concerning the deployment of big data clusters. We will cover the application and infrastructure architecture components for each use case with specific focus on deployments. The session goes into details around end-to-end automation for big data. We will also discuss topics related with best practices around data disaster recovery as well as cybersecurity.
