Apache Hadoop Is Retro: Unlocking Business Value
Apache Hadoop is a key technology for gaining business insights from your Big
Data, but the penetration into enterprises is shockingly low. In fact, Apache
Hadoop and Big Data proponents recognize that this technology has not yet
achieved its game-changing business potential.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, John Mertic, director of program
management for ODPi at The Linux Foundation, will explain why this is, how we
can work together as an open data community to increase adoption, and the
importance of open source-based Big Data standardization to help unlock more
business value for Apache Hadoop initiatives.
John Mertic is Director of Program Management for ODPi and Open Mainframe
Project at The Linux Foundation. Previously, he was director of business
development software alliances at Bitnami. He come... (more)
Cross-Protocol M2M IoT Communications
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.
HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race
at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular
basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the
communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them
all? Of course not.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu,
will walk you through how Octoblu solved this problem by building an open ... (more)
Building a Kubernetes Cluster with Ansible
Kubernetes is a new and revolutionary open-sourced system for managing
containers across multiple hosts in a cluster. Ansible is a simple IT
automation tool for just about any requirement for reproducible environments.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Patrick Galbraith, a
principal engineer at HPE, discussed how to build a fully functional
Kubernetes cluster on a number of virtual machines or bare-metal hosts. Also
included will be a brief demonstration of building a Kubernetes cluster and
then running on it a Galera ... (more)
Redis Functions and Data Structures for Everyday Use Cases
Redis is not only the fastest database, but it is the most popular among the
new wave of databases running in containers. Redis speeds up just about every
data interaction between your users or operational systems.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Dave Nielsen, Developer Advocate, Redis
Labs, will share the functions and data structures used to solve everyday use
cases that are driving Redis' popularity.
Dave Nielsen works for Redis Labs organizing hackathons, workshops and other
events to help developers l... (more)
StarNet Communications Corp has announced the addition of three Secure Remote
Desktop modules to its flagship X-Win32 PC X server. The new modules enable
X-Win32 to safely tunnel the remote desktops from Linux and Unix servers to
the user's PC over encrypted SSH.
Traditionally, users of PC X servers deploy the XDMCP protocol to display
remote desktop environments such as the Gnome and KDE desktops on Linux
servers and the CDE environment on Solaris Unix machines. XDMCP is used
primarily on company Local Area Networks as it is a both unsecure and does
not work over the Internet.
The speed at which data is generated, consumed, processed, and analyzed is
increasing at an unbelievably rapid pace. Social media, the Internet of
Things, ad tech, and gaming verticals are struggling to deal with the
disproportionate size of data sets. These industries demand data processing
and analysis in near real-time. Traditional Big Data-styled frameworks such
as Apache Hadoop are not well-suited for these use cases.
As a result, multiple open source projects have been started in the last few
years to deal with the streaming data. All were designed to
process a never-endin... (more)
