The choice of service providers is growing fast, with many offering Hadoop in the cloud. But if you’re not familiar with Hadoop technologies, there are many challenges. Join GigaOM Pro and MapR in the analyst roundtable discussion “Considerations for Hadoop in the cloud” to learn more.


Interest in using Hadoop to process large data sets is growing fast. Enterprises are moving from proof of concepts to positioning Hadoop as a strategic platform, and with that comes a set of questions on how to harden it for mission-critical applications. Some companies are using Hadoop services in the cloud as a business-continuity and data-protection target for internal Hadoop clusters, while others start with data that’s already in the cloud and perform analysis on it there.
