Pre-Session Video: The Elephant in the Room: A DBA's Guide to Hadoop and Big Data

Pre-Session Abstract: You're a SQL Server DBA working at Contoso and your boss calls you out of your cubicle one day and tells you that the development team is interested in implementing a Hadoop-based solution to your customers. She wants you to help plan for the implementation and ongoing administration. Where do you begin? This session will cover the foundations of Hadoop and how it fundamentally differs from the relational approach. The goal is to provide a map between your current skill set and "big data." Although we'll talk about basic techniques for querying data, the focus is on basic understanding how Hadoop works, how to plan for growth, and what you need to do to start maintaining a Hadoop cluster. You won't walk out of this session a Hadoop administrator, but you'll understand what questions to ask and where to start looking for answers.

Featured Presentation:

From the ground up, don't double your storage, lets build a cluster!

Paul Popovich Jr.

You're looking to protect your SQL instance from a machine failure. Or maybe your storage budget and tight and you don't want to have your databases in two places with some of the other HA options that SQL provides. Let's learn what a cluster is and why it might be the right thing for you. We'll explore the system, network, storage and database administration sides of the equation. And, when it's all said and done we'll even have built a SQL clustered instance!
