Cloud Expo: Transforming Cloud Infrastructure to Support Big Data

As companies turn to the cloud to store, manage and access Big Data, it’s clear that its benefits are tempered by technical bottlenecks: transfer performance over WANs, HTTP throughput within remote infrastructures, and size limitations of cloud object stores.
In her session at the 11th International Cloud Expo, Michelle Munson, President, CEO & Co-Founder of Aspera, will discuss principles of cloud object stores, using examples of Amazon S3, Microsoft Azure, and OpenStack Swift, and performance benchmarks of their native HTTP I/O. She will share best practices in orchestrating complex, large-scale Big Data workflows and examine the requirements and challenges of IT infrastructure designs (on-premise, cloud or hybrid), including high-speed transport technologies and high-performance NAS.
