Delivering Hadoop-as-a-Service To Your Organization
Some the barriers to Big Data adoption is lack of Hadoop skills and expertise, resulting in internal rogue IT or the public cloud. The EMC Hadoop Starter Kit helps overcomes these barriers, as IT can leverage existing investments in virtualization and storage to quickly deploy, manage, and scale a Hadoop cluster. And using Pivotal HD as the Hadoop distribution of choice, organizations are able leverage existing SQL skills to query and analyze data managed in Hadoop through an ANSI SQL interface to Hadoop. Using the EMC Hadoop Starter Kit to deploy Pivotal HD, organizations can accelerate Big Data adoption, move off of an expensive public cloud provider such as Amazon, and bring Hadoop-as-a-Service in house to meet business demands.
