BIG DATA Lunch & Learn Thursday 12/01/2016

IDSC Advanced Computing has developed a new big data platform ready for university faculty, staff, and students. The Bigfoot Hadoop cluster has made big data collection and processing possible. It provides user friendly interfaces to allow users to load, process, and query big data easily and efficiently. In this lunch-and-learn session “Process Big Data on Bigfoot Hadoop Cluster: Load and Query,” Dr. Zongjun Hu will first introduce several big data technologies behind the interfaces, and then demonstrate the general procedures to communicate with the cluster and utilize it for big data discovery research.

This event is open to: UM Faculty, Staff, and Students.

Abstract   Relational Database Manage System (RDBMS) had been a perfect solution for data warehouse and analytics. However the skyrocketing big data is changing the market significantly. The traditional technologies cannot keep up with the big data. Majority of the data is generated from wide range of sources and it is no longer structured data only. Its volume has gone way beyond the capability of RDBMS. It also has been generated in very high velocity, which basically cannot be handled by traditional technologies.
