The 3rd edition of Big Data Spain in Nov 2014 was a resounding success.
Watch the video below and find out why our attendees, speakers, partners and friends turned Big Data Spain into one of the largest events in Europe about Hadoop, Spark, NoSQL and cloud technologies.

Benchmarking Big Data systems by Cloudera

You will never look at vendor benchmarks the same way after this presentation.

Performance is an increasingly important attribute of Big Data systems as focus shifts from batch processing to real-time analysis and to consolidated multi-tenant systems. One of the little-understood challenges in scaling data systems is properly defining and measuring performance.

The complexity, diversity, and scale of big data systems make this a difficult task and we frequently encounter haphazard benchmarks that lead to bad technology choices, poor purchasing decisions, and suboptimal cluster operations. This talk draws on performance and field engineering experiences across Big Data deployments in multiple industries. We will talk about case studies of the most common performance benchmarking pitfalls and share practical advice on how to avoid them with rigorous metrics and measurement methods.
