R and Hadoop go together. In fact, they go together so well, that the number of options available can be confusing to IT and data science teams seeking solutions under varying performance and operational requirements.
Which configuration is faster for big files? Which is faster for sharing data and servers among groups? Which eliminates data movement? Which is easiest to manage? Which works best with iterative and multistep algorithms? What are the hardware requirements of each alternative?
This webinar is intended to help new users of R with Hadoop select their best architecture for integrating Hadoop and R, by explaining the benefits of several popular configurations, their performance potential, workload handling and programming model and administrative characteristics.
Presenters from Revolution Analytics will describe the options for using Revolution R Open and Revolution R Enterprise with Hadoop including servers, edge nodes, rHadoop and ScaleR. We’ll then compare the characteristics of each configuration as regards performance but also programming model, administration, data movement, ease of scaling, mixed workload handling, and performance for large individual analyses vs. mixed workloads.
