Architecting for the next generation of big data with Hadoop 2.0

Big data solutions are quickly becoming critical assets in modern enterprises that require a modern Linux operating platform and a robust, high-performance Java environment.

In this session, you’ll learn the best practices of deploying Hadoop 2 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 with OpenJDK 7. Using Hortonworks Hadoop Data Platform (HDP) 2 as a basis, we’ll:

  • Cover best practices around installation, deployment, and basic performance tuning.
  • Highlight OpenJDK optimizations that will help you achieve the best possible performance in your cluster.
  • Provide guidance on deploying HDP in virtualized environments and highlight benefits of this deployment model.
