Level:  Intermediate

Are you a U.S. Federal Government Agency or Private Sector Company about to embark on a large scale high performance computing / big data integration and analytics initiative where you need to integrate data from multiple different data sources? Do you have vast amounts of structured and unstructured data with valuable information in it that is not accessible to your users? Are you considering deploying this solution to the Cloud, or Curious as to how you would do so?

Learn how a Cloud Based HPC can save you millions vs. starting development on premise and migrating to the Cloud. Regardless of Industry, imagine a technology solution that allows you to "Fuse" structured and unstructured data together by "connecting the dots", storing integrated data and providing a set of robust and scalable data integration tools.

This session will address:

  • The challenges faced in the U.S. Federal Government & Private Sector to implement HPC systems in the Cloud

  • Detail a HPC solution that is implemented in AWS.

  • Explain and discuss approaches to Analytics, Data Cleansing, and Cloud based HPC NoSQL Data Integration approaches

  • Discuss lessons learned that can be applied to Government, and the private industry for a successful data integration effort
