Although the Hadoop Summit San Jose 2014 has come and gone, the invaluable content—keynotes, sessions, and tracks—is available here. I’ve selected a few sessions below for Hadoop system administrators and dev-ops, curating them under a general Hadoop operations theme.
Dev-ops engineers and system administrators know best that ease of operations and deployments can make or break a large Hadoop production cluster, which is why they care about all of the following:
- how rapidly they can create or replicate a cluster;
- how efficiently they can manage or monitor at scale;
- how easily and programmatically they can extend or customize their operational scripts; and
- how accurately they can foresee, forestall, or forecast resource starvation or capacity stipulation.
