This industry analyst report describes important considerations when planning a Hadoop implementation. While some companies have the skill and the will to build, operate, and maintain large Hadoop clusters of their own, a growing number are choosing not to make investments in-house and are looking to the cloud. In this report Gigaom Research explores: • How large Hadoop clusters behave differently from the small groups of machines developers typically use to learn • What models are available for running a Hadoop cluster, and which is best for specific situations • What are the costs and benefits of using Hadoop-as-a-Service With Hadoop delivered as a Service from trusted providers such as Altiscale, companies are able to focus less on managing and optimizing Hadoop and more on the business insights Hadoop can deliver.

In today’s technology-rich world, customers and employees demand the highest level of application performance. Failure to provide access to applications that consistently perform well anytime, anywhere, and on any device, often leads to lower productivity, customer dissatisfaction, decreased revenue and market share, and damage to brand reputation. This paper explores the challenges that today’s CIOs face in regard to application performance, and how a more strategic data center approach, like distributing applications closer to your users, can help optimize application performance and reduce IT costs.

Enterprises grapple with a host of challenges that are spurring the creation of hybrid clouds: collections of computing infrastructure spread across multiple data centers and multiple cloud providers. This new concept often provokes uncertainty, which must be addressed head on. As more applications and computing resources move to the cloud, enterprises will become more dependent on cloud vendors, whether the issue is access, hosting, management, or any number of other services. Cloud consumers want to avoid vendor lock-in—having only one cloud provider. They want to know that they will have visibility into data and systems across multiple platforms and providers. They want to be able to move servers and storage around without a negative impact on application availability. The good news is that more solutions become available every day, but with a learning curve and numerous management challenges and considerations. This CITO Research paper provides advice for managers about how to c

A leading U.S.-based financial services firm was faced with the growing challenge of providing consistent application performance to a vast employee base and nationwide network of partners. The company turned to Equinix to help redesign its network, both to improve performance and prepare for a move to a cloud-enabled environment. Equinix worked with the firm to deploy bi-coastal Equinix Performance Hubs, extension nodes of the company’s existing network placed in strategically located Equinix International Business Exchange (IBX) data centers. A Performance Hub moves services closer to end users and provides direct access to networks and cloud providers. By deploying Performance Hubs, the customer created a high-performance services platform for its business. The result was a dramatic decrease in network latency, improvements in application performance and an enhanced user experience.

Hotels and the travelers who frequent them bear little resemblance to their counterparts from just a few years ago. The explosion of new technologies has allowed hotels to change the way they operate and has made the average traveler more techsavvy and connected than ever. Mobile devices are driving this innovation. Not only have mobile devices changed how people interact with each other, they also have changed how people expect businesses to engage with them. According to SmartBrief, 40 percent of hotel guests carry three or more mobile devices. And with global mobile data traffic growing 30 percent every year according to Cisco, there will be an estimated 4.9 billion mobile users by 2018. When these mobile users travel, will they choose your hotel? Only if you have the mobile amenities they demand. In this white paper, we will review three mobile trends that every hotelier should address, and we’ll offer recommendations on how to best address them.

The restaurant and bar industry is highly competitive, and many owners of these establishments struggle every day just to stay in business. In fact, approximately 40 restaurants and bars go out of business each day in the U.S. According to celebrity chef, restaurateur, and entrepreneur Robert Irvine, “Part of the problem is that they don’t have the systems and processes in place to track the key aspects of their business – not only their costs and their revenue, but what items sell the best (and by how much), what items are most profitable, who are the most productive employees, and so on.” The use of technology tools and the Internet – driven by a high-speed network connection that supports owners, staff and guests – can be the key to evolving a restaurant or bar from a struggling survivor to a thriving, successful business.

Today’s K-12 schools are hungry for bandwidth. The reason is clear: highperforming, reliable and easily expanded network services support the latest classroom innovations, including videoconferencing, 1:1 computing, distance learning and modern learning management systems. It’s no surprise then that progressive educators now see a direct link between the overall success of their school districts and access to high-capacity networks. This emerged as a clear trend in new research by the Center for Digital Education (CDE) — a commanding 98 percent of administrators and IT representatives said the future of K-12 education hinges on ubiquitous connectivity. This white paper lays a framework for planning and implementing high-performance networks. In addition to explaining why now’s the time to plan network upgrades, this paper answers one of the fundamental questions asked by IT managers at schools everywhere: “How much network capacity will we actually need?”

The introduction of bandwidth-intensive learning applications, including video and peer-to-peer applications in teaching has fundamentally transformed the way teachers teach and students learn. The federal E-rate program has forever changed the technology landscape of school districts and libraries in the United States. Receiving funding is not guaranteed, and following the E-rate process and procedures is critical – especially when thousands, even millions, of dollars are at stake for your district. The rewards that new, education-specific cutting edge education applications deliver to the classroom far outweigh the effort required to participate in the program. This paper briefly examines the promise of new, education-specific applications, the advanced network services that enable them, and the role of the E-rate program.
