From speeding deployment times, to lowering TCO, to driving greater workforce agility, cloud infrastructure can deliver a number of benefits back to your business. In this session, we will cover how to run your Hadoop workloads on public cloud, optimizing for cluster transience, elasticity, object-store integration, and flexible pricing.

13:50pm – Data Science in the Enterprise

Self-service data science is easier said than delivered, especially on Apache Hadoop.
