Attend a webinar that will give a BIG push to your Big Data initiative

Chris Daly is the Chief Outbound Engineer in the Big Data Systems Engineering organization at HP. Having been at HP in one form or another for the past 17 years, he has spent the last several years focused on Big Data solutions for customers. In his current role, he is responsible for interfacing with field resources and customers for solutions around Hadoop.


When the HP customers I talk to realize what they could do with Big Data, every one of them gets excited about the possibilities. Imagine being able to derive new business insights from a platform that stores, manages and processes data at scale to drive growth, sales, revenue, and competitiveness. Yet many of these same customers hesitate to launch a Big Data initiative, because they also realize that leading Big Data solutions like Apache Hadoop can be complex to deploy, configure, manage and monitor.

What in-memory computing can do for you (and your Big Data)

Unlike traditional Big Data analytics methods that separate data storage from the processing elements, in-memory computing uses main memory for storing data.Using simplified algorithms, in-memory computing executes fewer CPU instructions and reduces seek-time during the data-query process, resulting in much faster performance than disk-based data storage.
