Gaining Richer Insights and Business Outcomes with the EMC Big Data Portfolio (Keynote) on June 30th at 10:15 AM

A recent study by IDC suggests that world data growth is expanding at a 5x rate, and will lead to as much as 40,000 exabytes by 2020. With data generation at such enormous rates, it is becoming essential that our interaction and understanding of these sets must bring out the value in a way that reveals rich insights and truly enhances business outcomes.  However, faced with obstacles from ingesting and indexing the right data from multiple sources, to not being able to retain data long enough, and waiting on IT to spin up sufficient resources, businesses can struggle in their Big Data initiatives early on. EMC knows these challenges first-hand as we have been through them ourselves. From this experience, we have learned two things: the power of data is a game changer and the power of infrastructure is essential to discovering actionable insights. In this session, we will review the EMC Big Data Portfolio and related services that will help get your own initiatives off the ground– no matter where you are on your Big Data journey.

We also have a 40-minute technical session on June 28th at 2:50 PM in Liffy Hall 1

Increasing Hadoop Resiliency and Performance with EMC Isilon

Isilon is a core platform for EMC Big Data Solutions that improves Hadoop Resiliency, Operations and Performance.  There has been limited analysis on the impact failures (disk, compute, namenode, datanode) have on Hadoop Performance and data driven operations.  Even if you are not an EMC customer today, this lecture will provide valuable insights on why such failures affect Hadoop’s performance and operations and how EMC Isilon better addresses these issues to limit impact of various failure scenarios.

We look forward to seeing you there and don’t forget to tweet with hashtag #HS16SJ
