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…

Thanks to my friends at Dice for providing this article.
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.
