Hadoop: A Deep Dive

This first installment in our Hadoop webinar series is back by popular demand with new content.

This webinar will provide a holistic view of Hadoop and the components that make up its ecosystem. This webinar will also cover how to optimize global deployments for continuous availability, performance, and scalability.

Attendees will be introduced to concepts they will need as a prerequisite for subsequent training webinars covering MapReduce, HBase and other major components at a deeper technical level.


  • Real world Hadoop deployment examples
  • Review of major Hadoop ecosystem components including: Hive, Oozie, Flume, Nutch, Sqoop and others
  • An in-depth look at HDFS and an explanation of MapReduce in relation to latency and dependence
  • Optimizing global deployments for continuous availability, performance, and scalability

Hardening Hadoop for the Enterprise

Join guest speaker Matt Aslett of 451 Research for an in-depth look at how enterprises are hardening Hadoop to ensure compliance with data security and availability standards that have been enforced with traditional database deployments in large enterprises.

Hadoop's popularity has exploded in recent years as businesses have begun collecting massive quantities of structured and unstructured data including images, video, and audio that traditional database technology simply can’t handle. Along with the ability to collect large quantities of a wide variety of data, however, comes the responsibility to comply with Sarbanes Oxley (SOX), HIPAA, PCI, Basel II, and other regulations.

  • Present and future Hadoop infrastructure trends
  • Use cases driving enterprise Hadoop adoption
  • How businesses are hardening Hadoop to comply with regulatory standards
  • Ensuring continuous availability and consistent performance for real-time applications across multiple data centers connected over a wide area network
