Apache Hadoop Marries OpenStack Sahara
OpenStack Sahara for Hadoop: Why and How | Stratoscale http://ow.ly/XyQZd
This is a great article to use for reference from Statoscale.
It explains how Sahara is used to create Hadoop Clusters on OpenStack.
Sahara is a OpenStack project (formally known as Savanna) with its main purpose to simplify installing Hadoop,Spark and Storm clusters.Sahara can install and mange several clusters at the same time, add new and remove old nodes from the cluster.
Here is a great article about the difference between Hyper-Convergence and Convergence?
The Hyper-convergence of cloud computing infrastructure is now a reality. The growing success of OpenStack implementations in public and private clouds is testimony to the trend of Hyper-convergence.
Hyper-convergence simply means modular distributed systems running on commodity hardware that are by design massively scalable, fault tolerant and reliable.
Now a few questions come to the fore. How are Hyper-converged systems different from traditional converged systems? What is fostering Hyper-convergence trend in the age of multi-clouds (public,private and hybrid clouds)? What are the benefits of Hyper-converged systems? How is OpenStack enabling Hyper-convergence?
We will examine all these questions in this post.
Converged systems vs. Hyper-converged systems
Converged systems are a natural extension of traditional IT infrastructure, which previously existed and operated in silos. The converged systems combined two or more of these technologies to provide pre-engineered systems.
The pre-engineered converged systems are separate technology components engineered to work well when combined…

When did we lose track of how much data is being grown and delivered?
I would say never.Data to me is like the change you save in the jar at home.This jar has all the coins from emptying your pockets everyday.You never count it , you just dump it and save it for when you need it.Social Media data is almost the same thing.It just grows every day and only a few people care about it.Well now , its time to empty the jar. Now what are we going to do with it? Who empties the jar ? Who counts the change ? Who spends the money? You can ask the same question using Big Data.The Who,Why and How it is being used and explored every day.
Image, if you owned all the data in the world.It would be like owning all the currencies from all the countries in your pocket.This is why Big Data is the real deal and Social Media will be one of the driving force.
Check out the article below for more details and examples.

So you’re wondering ,why they need a new internet network in San Francisco?
Apparently,our normal network is getting a bit cluttered with this IOT (Internet of Things)growth.With all sorts of devices now needing a connection to transfer data we find our selves running out of room.You say, now that can’t be possible .. we just need to make a bigger Internet Pipe to use.Just like adding lanes to a highway.Well, that is true.We could do that.In fact, that is exactly how I see Sigfox operating.They are targeting a “commuter lane” per se on the internet.They have come up with a lane on the internet that allows you to use a smaller bandwidth of information(100 bits per second)and millions of connections.Their technology is based on M2M( machine to machine) communications.
Think of it like this: the commuter lane was first used for cars with 2 or more people and motorcycles.Now 2014, we have included electric and hybrid cars as well closed lanes with fast pass.Compare that to what is happening in SF with Sigfox, you can see how every small device from sensors on light meters , appliances,consumer gadgets (wearables) smart machines and god knows what else.They all can use these new lanes.
Let’s embrace this new lane of the internet and be glad we can use more of it.Perhaps, it will take a while to get used to ,but I don’t see that it will be a problem.I see this as an opportunity to create more devices with connections to larger devices without dragging down the internet.
And we all know what a drag that can be.
Take a look at this article from Gigamon for more details.
How interview smart are you about Big Data Hadoop?
Everyone is learning the new game in town … Big Data – Hadoop.
Not everyone has the practical knowledge and experience with Hadoop.This is what is being said by recruiters and head hunters every where.Job hunters know how easily to describe a subject clearly without any practical experience.Its it on the HR coordinators and head hunters to make the proper decision for the hire.If your the one looking for the job in this space, its your job to get the practical experience. If you don’t have the practical experience use these tips.
Thanks for the article from Dice News.
4 Interview Questions for Newcomers to Hadoop
Just to be clear… I think it is. Is Education worth it absolutely. Does what you spend equal what you will make ? Who knows.
See how Big Data is being used to create this InfoGraphics on the subject.
That being said, You can find a successful career without going to college.At what price do you wish to pay.I was once told there is a difference between a job and a career.Your time in school should help you decide this choice.Plus the fact that is part of your natural growing experiences in life.Not only that but every parent with kids dream of their child being the next big thing. Students are smarter and know now what the cost of college is.Not only how much it cost,but how much in debt they will be in student loan repayments.
