1154-2 - How To Build a Unified Hadoop Data Lake and AI Infrastructure Using All Flash FAS and Cloud Volumes The NetApp Active IQ platform has evolved from a traditional Hadoop architecture to a hybrid cloud architecture over the past two years. We process over 70 billion data points daily with this new architecture that uses the best of on-premise and cloud infrastructure to deliver an agile, low-cost platform for Big Data and AI. In this talk, we will describe how we built a unified data lake using NetApp All Flash FAS, and how that led to a 12x reduction in storage space, a 30% reduction in operating expenses, and a substantial improvement in performance. We will also describe our AI edge-to-core-to-cloud data pipeline and how we leverage the public cloud, NetApp Data Fabric and Cloud Volumes to make it easy for our data scientists to build predictive models, as well as how NetApp simplifies analyzing Big Data in the cloud based on our validation and customer use case with different cloud service providers such as AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud. We will share our experience in HDInsight cluster using Market Place App, AWS EMR and EC2, Google DataProcs with Cloud Volume, NPS, and Cloud ONTAP for various Hadoop workloads. We will explain how we retrieve the Hadoop data from non-NetApp into NPS using Cloud Sync and share it with AWS and Google Cloud Platform and use the on-premise data in Cloud through NPS for Hadoop and Machine Learning workloads. Finally, we describe customer deployments and a powerful way to back up a data lake using the NetApp In-Place Analytics module (also called the NFS connector). 1 Hour Breakout Karthikeyan Nagalingam - TME
