  • Introducing Apache Hadoop: The Modern Data Operating System

    by Amr Awadallah

    Sophisticated data instrumentation and collection technologies are leading to unprecedented data growth. Data-driven organizations need to be able to scale their data storage and perform complex data processing on the collected data (i.e. not just "queries"). Given the unstructured nature of the source data and the need to stay agile, organizations must also be able to change their schemas dynamically (at read-time versus write-time). Apache Hadoop is an open-source distributed fault-tolerant system that leverages commodity hardware to achieve large-scale agile data storage and processing. In this presentation, Dr. Amr Awadallah will introduce the design principles behind Apache Hadoop and explain the architecture of its core sub-systems (the Hadoop Distributed File System and MapReduce). Awadallah will also contrast Hadoop to relational database systems and illustrate how they truly complement each other. Finally, he will cover the Hadoop ecosystem at large, which includes a number of projects that together form a cohesive Data Operating System for the modern data center, and he will outline how this fits into existing data infrastructures.

    by Rob Parkes

    In the Smart City context, the Internet of Things promises ways of improving our Quality of Life through the ubiquitous connectivity of inanimate objects in conjunction with a City “central nervous system” to control the information, processing the ambient intelligence it receives and acting accordingly. But what is the reality of today’s Smart Cities? What life-improving capabilities exist today and what do the citizens of these pioneer Smart Cities want? This presentation will attempt to answer these questions with a peek at the Alcatel-Lucent primary market research on Smart Cities and how it relates to everyday lives.
