Research and Markets: Global Hadoop-as-a-service Market 2012-2016 Report Reveals That the Lack of Awareness of HDaaS Solutions os One of the Major Challenges

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/kdct4k/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Hadoop-as-a-service Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Hadoop-as-a-Service market to grow at a CAGR of 95.16 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the demand for cost-effective big data management. The Global Hadoop-as-a-Service market has also been witnessing the growing demand for hadoop-as-a-service (HDaaS) solutions from SMEs. However, the lack of awareness could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Amazon Web Services Inc., IBM Corp., EMC Corp., and Microsoft Corp.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are Google Inc., Cloudera Inc., MapR Technologies Inc., Hortonworks Inc., Infochimps Inc., Continnuity Inc., and Mortar Data Inc.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Enterprise Computing team said: ''It has been observed that, similar to large enterprises, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are also collecting huge amounts of data in their databases in the form of social media data, customer data, enterprise applications, and financial data. It has also been witnessed that a large number of SMEs are looking for cost-effective solutions for managing their big data. Another major reason for the demand for hadoop-as-a-service (HDaaS) solutions by SMEs is the increasing competition in the business environment. Enterprises are facing the challenge of ever-increasing competition. To counteract this challenge, they need to manage and analyze big data solutions and derive actionable insight to come up with a customer-driven marketing strategy. Since HDaaS solutions are one of the best measures that enable companies to perform analytics activities with low capital investment, SMEs across the globe are increasingly starting to adopt HDaaS solutions.''

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the demand for cost-effective big data management. Cost-effective cloud computing technology and the ability of Hadoop software to effectively manage and analyze large amounts of data enable enterprises to manage their big data of any size in a cost-effective manner.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
