Big data – a buzzword that every industry is trying to wrap its head
around. But what does it mean for networking?
Plexxi’s Ed Henry had the opportunity to discuss big data fabrics and
Plexxi’s perspective on tackling big data in networking at a Big Data for
Business Meet-Up in Denver.
Ed shared insight into both the hardware (the components and switches) and
software (affinity groups and links) and how the combination of the two is
necessary to manage big data. Plexxi’s hardware/software approach
integrated with Cloudera Manager allows companies to manage big data clusters
and provisioned services. For more information on how Plexxi can help you
define and manage your big data, contact email@example.com.
This is the first of many meet-ups Plexxi will be attending to share
networking and big data insights. Stay tuned to find out when we’ll be in a
city near you. Ar... (more)
If you’ve been following us on the blog or on social media, you know that
we announced our partnership with Big Data platform provider Cloudera last
month. And, that a few months ago, our own Ed Henry demonstrated how to
construct Big Data fabrics that easily integrate with systems like OpenStack
and Cloudera during an installation of SDxCentral’s DemoFriday series. That
webinar was recently published on SDxCentral’s website. You can watch the
full presentation here to see the next generation of data fabrics in action.

Happy New Year! The year is off to a great start and we are excited to see
what 2015 will bring to the networking space. I have a few predictions of my
own (think policy and disaggregation) that were recently published in Network
World. What are your networking predictions for 2015? Below are our top picks
for networking stories this week.
In this week’s PlexxiTube #FBF (Flashback Friday) video of the week, Dan
Backman interviews VMworld 2014 attendees and asks what they’ve done to
help their networks accommodate to Big Data.

Big Data Is Driving Datacenter Infrastructure Development
You may have seen last week that we partnered with Cloudera, certifying the
Plexxi Switch on Cloudera’s Enterprise 5 platform.
This partnership, while exciting for us and our partners, plays a larger role
in the IT landscape as a whole. According to an article this week by Arthur
Cole of Enterprise Networking Planet, this move embodies Cole’s belief that
networking infrastructure development is increasingly being driven by Big
Data applications. He cites the key challenge as not finding somewhere to
store all the data (e.g... (more)
This week, we announced that we’ve partnered with Big Data platform
provider Cloudera. Cloudera’s data management platform enables enterprises
to use Apache’s open source Hadoop software to better manage their data.
The Plexxi Switch, now certified with Cloudera’s Enterprise 5 platform, is
the first SDN-based Ethernet switch and the only truly single-tier, scale-out
networking solution. We’re excited to have Cloudera on board to provide
network operators a solution to address their Big Data needs.

week. H... (more)
