President, Emerging Technologies Division, EMC
A rising tide of information is being collected, processed, and analyzed by enterprises around the world, but this flood of data brings as many challenges as it does solutions. As companies become more data driven in a wide range of activities, they will need their production big data implementations to meet common enterprise requirements such as high performance, scalability, availability, security, and compliance. Underlying the databases and analytics engines, other parts of the technology stack are critical components for providing these qualities, not the least of which involves the choice of storage platforms. The storage systems can make or break a big data implementation. EMC is a leader in purpose built storage for Enterprise ready Hadoop. Come hear EMC's vision and strategy in transforming companies into data-driven enterprises using Hadoop based technologies and best practices.
