Big Data Analytics and Data Science: Is Your Organization Ready for the Deluge?

The growth in the amount of data – from social media, streamed video, and unstructured documents – is a boon for storage vendors. But this assault is just beginning – IDC predicts that by 2020 there will be 20 billion new internet of things (IoT) devices globally, each sending data to be gathered, stored and analyzed.

But why move data into a monolithic lake when you can process it where it’s created?

In an age where everyone makes data-driven decisions, what should you be doing now to prepare for the analytics and data science demands your users will make?

That’s what we’re talking about today with Syed Mahmood, Director of Product Management for Data Science at Hortonworks.

  • Which data sources matter most – today and in the future
  • How to survive the expected shortage of data scientists
  • Why bringing analytics and models ‘to the edge’ enhances efficiency
  • How to reconcile data scientists’ growing need for self-service with governance mandates
  • What data governance and security impacts the data deluge will create

Cost Optimization with Amazon Web Services

How do you minimize costs within Amazon Web Services (AWS) while assuring performance?

Customers are facing incredible pressure to modernize and transform their IT to become a digital business; cloud is central to this transformation. Figuring out what workloads go on-premises, what goes in cloud, and how to manage the transition is challenging – and mistakes are costly. This is exacerbated even further once customers get to the cloud and need to manage the complexity.

In this white paper you will learn:

  • The Challenge of Hybrid Cloud
  • The Turbonomic Hybrid Cloud Management Platform
  • Optimizing AWS Architecture: Migrate to cloud; Lower Costs; Assure Performance; Enforce Policies

The Path to Hybrid Cloud: Intelligent Bursting to AWS and Azure

How do you manage effective implementation in the hybrid cloud?

The hybrid cloud has been heralded as a promising IT operational model enabling enterprises to maintain security and control over the infrastructure on which their applications run. At the same time, it promises to maximize ROI from their local data center and leverage public cloud infrastructure for an occasional demand spike.

Public Clouds are relatively new in the IT landscape and their adoption has accelerated over the last few years with multiple vendors now offering solutions as well as improved on-ramps for workloads to ease the adoption of hybrid cloud model. With these advances and the ability to choose between a local data center and multiple public cloud offerings, one fundamental question must still be answered: What, When and Where do you run workloads to guarantee performance while maximizing the efficiency.

In this whitepaper you will learn:

  • A brief history of hybrid cloud
  • The different public cloud offerings on the market
  • Why public cloud adoption is skyrocketing
  • The challenges that come with adopting public cloud
  • The “what, when and where” to run your workloads
  • How Turbonomic’s solution can help accelerate cloud adoption with Autonomic IT
