Big Data Architecture Design


Innovative Approaches & Design Challenges for Big Data Architectures by Brian Finley, Lenovo


Hadoop open source software suite has been instrumental in ushering in the paradigm shift from classical to “Big Data” computing, both for its’ creators and a broad audience of commercial, research, industrial & academic users. While it is usually the core framework that can be part of a Big Data platform, it does have a number of limitations. This talk will address some of those limitations and how alternate pre-existing and emerging solutions are being incorporated with Hadoop to satisfy certain scaling and enterprise class requirements in modern Big Data architectures.
