Dell EMC Can Help You Dive In to Successful Hadoop Projects

Hadoop Product Management and Planning at Dell EMC Converged Platforms and Solutions Division

Latest posts by Armando Acosta (see all)

As Strata + Hadoop World kicks off in San Jose this week, the Dell EMC team will be there in full force. In addition to our long history supporting Cloudera Hadoop with Dell EMC solutions, we’re also broadening our support with a new, open-standards based Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Hortonworks Hadoop offering.

There is clearly growing interest in this area, but during my five years managing Hadoop products for Dell EMC, I frequently hear prospective customers say, “I understand the value of Hadoop, but I don’t know where to start.” They know Hadoop is an innovative technology that offers unique opportunities as a foundation for capitalizing on the untapped values of big data; however, customers say that one or more of the following blockers are getting in the way of a successful project launch:

  • We don’t have the skill set in my organization to pull it off
  • We’ve spent a lot of time and effort on the front-end work and don’t have much to show for it
  • We’re not sure what else we are going to need beside HDFS and MapReduce

EMC & Lightstorm Entertainment Redefine the Film Industry for a Digital Future

Jon Landau

Producer, COO and Partner at Lightstorm Entertainment

Lightstorm Entertainment strives to push the boundaries of the film industry; with every movie we’ve done, from Titanic to Terminator 2: Judgment Day to Avatar. It’s interesting creatively for us to do things that stray from the norm, and that culture is reflected in the way we refer to our business.

To me, there’s no such thing as a “film industry” anymore. Nobody works on film anymore; we certainly don’t. We are, unquestionably, 100 percent digital. Movies like Avatar – which grossed more than $2.7 billion worldwide – simply would not exist without digital technology.

The Pit and the Podium: EMC Puts Converged Infrastructure into High Gear for Lotus F1 Team

EMC Pulse

A winning Formula 1 car is built with 80,000 parts and components that must perform together at speeds of over 200 mph. To support the success of such a technologically advanced racing car, a wealth of compute, storage and network technologies are required to analyze data, aid design, support manufacturing, monitor on-track performance, and more. Smaller, lighter and faster are the driving forces behind IT as much as they are in Formula 1 racing.

To accomplish all that, it takes an IT infrastructure that’s as streamlined, sleek and powerful as the car itself. Today, with a converged infrastructure from EMC, Lotus F1 Team has achieved that goal.
