Tips for Debugging Distributed Systems

Among Cloudera’s engineer-presenters at Strata + Hadoop World 2013 this week, Philip Zeyliger (“Tricks for Distributed System Debugging and Diagnosis“) was particularly fortunate to have been interviewed by O’Reilly Media editor Meghan Blanchette on camera.

In the following 8-minute interview, Philip offers an overview of common pain points and failures when debugging distributed systems:

See You Next Week at Strata + Hadoop World 2013!

Strata

We are just a weekend away from the Biggest. Strata + Hadoop World. Ever.

Download the New Impala e-Book from O’Reilly Media

As a delicious appetizer for the Strata Conference + Hadoop World next week (sold out!), O’Reilly Media has partnered with us to create and publish a new e-book specifically intended for technical end-users of Cloudera Impala, the open source distributed query engine for Apache Hadoop.

Authored by Cloudera’s own John Russell, the e-book provides a 30-page tour of Impala’s internals and architecture, as well as common usage patterns intended for mainstream (SQL) users.

Customer Spotlight: Learn How Edo Closes the Advertising Loop with Hadoop at Cloudera Sessions Milwaukee

The Cloudera Sessions fall series is coming to a close next week, but first we’ll make a final stop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (on Oct. 17), where attendees will hear about edo — a company that is revolutionizing the advertising space by closing the loop between promotions and point-of-sale transactions.

In Milwaukee, edo CTO Jeff Sippel will engage in a fireside chat with Cloudera’s VP of marketing, Alan Saldich. At edo, Jeff is responsible for the strategy, planning, and execution for the systems — including Apache Hadoop — that power the edo offer platforms.

Customer Spotlight: ISS’ Wes Caldwell Speaks at Cloudera Sessions in Denver

This week’s Cloudera Sessions roadshow will make it to Denver, Colo., on Thursday, where the customer Fireside Chat will feature Intelligent Software Solutions (ISS) Chief Architect of Global Enterprise Solutions, Wes Caldwell. ISS helps many government organizations – including several within the U.S. Department of Defense — deploy next-generation data management and analytic solutions using a combination of systems integration expertise and custom-built software.

During the Fireside Chat, Cloudera’s COO Kirk Dunn will engage Wes in a conversation to discuss the business use cases for Hadoop that ISS sees most often in the field, primarily within two buckets: batch analytics and real-time applications. Wes will also share his thoughts on some of the more recent innovations within the Apache Hadoop ecosystem, such as Cloudera Impala and Solr integrations.

Next Stops for The Cloudera Sessions: Jersey City, Miami, Denver, Milwaukee

Cloudera Sessions

In its first leg of its tour of the United States earlier this year (see photos here), The Cloudera Sessions proved to be an invaluable single-day event for business and technical leaders exploring practical applications of Apache Hadoop. So valuable, in fact, that we’ve extended the tour with dates/cities this September and October.

Customer Spotlight: Hear from eBay, LiveRamp, Comcast, and OCLC at Cloudera Sessions

We’re kicking off the second leg of our Cloudera Sessions roadshow this week, starting in San Francisco on Wednesday and Philadelphia on Friday. The spring series of the Cloudera Sessions was a big hit, which is why we’re back with a new and improved agenda for the fall, to offer even more options that will help attendees — ranging from developers to line-of-business managers and executives — navigate the Big Data journey. The expanded fall series agenda includes an application development lab (based on CDK) that coincides with the general session throughout the morning, and two tracks for clinics after lunch.

One portion of the general session that was a big hit throughout the spring series and that will return this fall is the Fireside Chat, during which the Cloudera executive host sits with one or two customers to talk about their “real life” experiences and lessons learned with Apache Hadoop. The Fireside Chat gives local customers an opportunity to showcase the work they’re doing, and allows attendees to hear from real users what worked, what didn’t, how they got started with Hadoop, and best practices learned along the way.
