Cooking with Linux - Tonight's Menu: Diner's Choice!
François was designed by the amazing Robert Karlsson, courtesy of Linux Journal. My thanks to both for putting a face (and species) on my faithful waiter.
François, how did you manage to sneak in that portrait of yourself? You truly are efficient today, mon ami. I see that you have continued to refresh our guests' glasses. Excellent. Sadly, it seems that closing time is upon us, so the next refill will have to be the last one. My sincere thanks to everyone out there for joining me here every month these past seven years and for helping make Cooking with Linux as much fun as it has been. I also want to thank the members of my own WFTL-LUG, aka “The Lug Nuts” (new members welcome), who joined me in the restaurant today. For a complete list of past Cooking with Linux columns and links to each article on-line, check out www.marcelgagne.com/ljcooking.html. Now that François has so graciously refilled your glasses, please join me in a toast and let us all drink to one another's health. A votre santé Bon appétit!

Free Webinar: Hadoop
How to Build an Optimal Hadoop Cluster to Store and Maintain Unlimited Amounts of Data Using Microservers
Realizing the promise of Apache® Hadoop® requires the effective deployment of compute, memory, storage and networking to achieve optimal results. With its flexibility and multitude of options, it is easy to over or under provision the server infrastructure, resulting in poor performance and high TCO. Join us for an in depth, technical discussion with industry experts from leading Hadoop and server companies who will provide insights into the key considerations for designing and deploying an optimal Hadoop cluster.
Some of key questions to be discussed are:
- What is the “typical” Hadoop cluster and what should be installed on the different machine types?
- Why should you consider the typical workload patterns when making your hardware decisions?
- Are all microservers created equal for Hadoop deployments?
- How do I plan for expansion if I require more compute, memory, storage or networking?
