During the upcoming 2014 EMC World show, we invite you to join us for an informative tour of SuperNAP, The World’s leader in Data Center EcoSystem Development and home of the 1000-node Hadoop cluster.  In this tour, we will show how a Hadoop cluster is deployed in a co-location data center, maintained and provide analytics tools for a large community of businesses and academic institutes. It will be a great opportunity to learn about actual working cluster workloads, design considerations and available tools for next generation businesses opportunities in Big Data.

The tours are hosted by Mellanox, Pivotal and Switch. We will enter the data center and review the facilities making this big elephant thrive.  There are two tours schedules available, both leaving from the Venetian Hotel.  Space is limited, RSVP today.
