Cloud Computing and Big Data


You have a “big data” problem if standard servers cannot handle your data volume, the speed with which you accumulate data, or the diversity of your data's data types.  The industry is responding to big data problems by introducing infrastructure of server farms, virtual machines, virtual storage, and even virtual networks.  Applications are being ported to this environment with varying degrees of success and performance.  This infrastructure is bundled into “cloud systems” that offer customers the use of these ported applications and virtual capabilities “on demand” via an hourly rental model.  Big vendors such as Amazon and Microsoft are now offering proprietary clouds.  Other vendors offer “private clouds” where a customer can use their own equipment locally or at a data center, and can use alternative cloud infrastructure.  There are mixtures of these approaches, sometimes called “hybrid clouds” that provide a more complex, but more flexible system.  This talk will analyze these offerings and will discuss how to use them to address big data problems.
