Learn about BigBench, the new industrywide effort to create a sorely needed Big Data benchmark.
Benchmarking Big Data systems is an open problem. To address this concern, numerous hardware and software vendors are working together to create a comprehensive end-to-end big data benchmark suite called BigBench. BigBench builds upon and borrows elements from existing benchmarking efforts in the Big Data space (such as YCSB, TPC-xHS,

Apache Hadoop provides a great ecosystem of tools for extracting value from data in various formats and sizes. Originally focused on large-batch processing with tools like MapReduce, Apache Pig, and Apache Hive, Hadoop now provides many tools for running interactive queries on your data, such as Impala, Drill, and Presto. This post shows you how to use Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) to analyze a data set available on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and then use Tableau with Impala to visualize the data.
Using this new tutorial alongside Cloudera Live is now the fastest, easiest, and most hands-on way to get started with Hadoop.
At Cloudera, developer enablement is one of our most important objectives. One only has to look at examples from history (Java or SQL, for example) to know that knowledge fuels the ecosystem. That objective is what drives initiatives such as our community forums, the Cloudera QuickStart VM,
The meetup opportunities during the conference week are more expansive than ever — spanning Impala, Spark, HBase, Kafka, and more.
Strata + Hadoop World 2014 is a kaleidoscope of experiences for attendees, and those experiences aren’t contained within the conference center’s walls. For example, the meetups that occur during the conf week (which is concurrent with NYC DataWeek) are a virtual track for developers — and with Strata + Hadoop World being bigger than ever,
This overview will cover the basic tarball setup for your Mac.
If you’re an engineer building applications on CDH and becoming familiar with all the rich features for designing the next big solution, it becomes essential to have a native Mac OSX install. Sure, you may argue that your MBP with its four-core, hyper-threaded i7, SSD, 16GB of DDR3 memory are sufficient for spinning up a VM, and in most instances —
