Big Data, Cloud Computing, and Hadoop

I gave a talk to the IEEE on June 23, 2012 on Consulting Opportunities Using Apache Hadoop.   As appropriate for the IEEE, the talk went over big data and the hardware and data centers being used to process big data.  We discussed Google’s failure data for clusters of machines with 100’s to 1000’s of machines.  We went over Google’s File System, and the Hadoop open source analog HDFS, and then we plunged into several examples and techniques for writing applications that utilized the MapReduce infrastructure.

Throughout the talk, we discussed many consulting opportunities in this relatively new, fast growing, space.

Please add questions and suggestions for a future talk/seminar.
