While the rise of Big Data offers many opportunities, it can pose certain conditions to networks today. The optimal network to support Big Data applications is not the one that has been around for decades; Big Data requirements need the next generation of data fabrics.
Join us, tomorrow, October 24, when Plexxi will highlight its Big Data fabric that provides high-capacity interconnect as well as bandwidth and latency control in a network. Plexxi will show how to build a Big Data fabric that is scalable, manageable, and integrated with surrounding systems like OpenStack and Cloudera.
Join Ed Henry of Plexxi product management and Nils Swart of Plexxi business development as they highlight:
- Big Data fabric setup, including application and tenant performance requirements
- Automated VLAN provisioning using OpenStack
- Dynamic rack awareness
- Node visualization
- Cloudera integration
- Live fabric utilization heat map to identify congestion
The demo will showcase photonically-interconnected switches built around a controller-based architecture. At the core of Plexxi’s networking view is the notion that the job doesn’t end at connectivity, and that traditional leaf-spine architectures miss the point. Not all applications are the same, and not all resources can be neatly tucked into a few adjacent racks. The network needs to account for differences in requirements and data locality.
Sign up now to join us for the DemoFriday™ with Plexxi! We’ll webcast it live tomorrow, October 24 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. We’ll see you there!
