What You Need to Know

You need greater efficiency, agility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness from your IT infrastructure. Legacy storage solutions just aren’t cutting it anymore! What many IT Organizations don’t know is that there are many different solutions available to solve these IT challenges!

The one thing that all businesses have in common is that they want and need IT solutions to make their lives easier, more efficient, and more affordable, particularly as digital transformation efforts take center stage. Converged, hyperconverged, composable, and other integrated platforms (collectively, integrated systems) all have the potential to accomplish these goals which can allow the IT organization to focus their efforts more on business outcomes rather than hardware.

These integrated platforms promise to streamline IT operations and reduce costs while allowing you to achieve greater scalability, availability, and agility. Many solutions also allow you to adopt hybrid and multi-cloud architectures and seamlessly operate across private, edge, and public cloud environments to support just about any use case. Some of these solutions can provide dynamic orchestration of resources which allows you to easily provision new workloads with ease.

One of the biggest challenges for IT pros and decision makers is finding a way to quickly educate themselves on all of the available solutions in the integrated systems market. There are serious benefits and differences between the different types of integrated systems and you need to discover which one is right for your company.

HDP on ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform

Although the Docker revolution has made containers mainstream, containerizing big data is challenging because many containerization platforms do not support stateful applications. With the first and only out-of-the-box container-based solution that is certified by Hortonworks to run HDP, Robin Systems helps to build an Application-Defined Infrastructure.

Containerizing big data brings to the table many benefits such as 1. Improved utilization and reduced licensing costs with shared hardware resources, 2. Decreased administration costs and reduced time-to-market for big data apps with simplified operations.

Join this Robin Hortonworks Webinar to learn about:

  1. App-store experience; 1-click deployment of HDP: Deploying HDP is now as easy as installing an app from the App Store. Robin enables self-service big data deployment with 1-click cluster provisioning to deploy complex distributed applications in minutes.
  2. Doesn’t get any simpler: Scaling up and scaling out is now as easy as adjusting the brightness on your phone – Use sliders to configure compute, network, and storage layers.
  3. Meet critical SLAs: See how Robin’s multi-tenant architecture enables IT teams to meet the most demanding SLAs and handle performance isolation between HDP services even in a shared infrastructure environment while letting development and scientific user teams enjoy the simplicity of an app-store experience.

Core Elements to Running an Oracle Database Using Docker

In the last few years, Docker has been widely adopted in the stateless application space. Large enterprises have now started to explore the idea to use Docker to run stateful database and big data applications as well. Docker containers are light-weight, portable, and provide a great alternative to VM based virtualization while ensuring bare-metal grade performance. Running Oracle Using Docker is now a breeze with ROBIN Hyper-Converged Kubernetes Platform

Enterprise Applications Challenges – While the Cloud seems great for saving on CAPEX (subscription vs hardware) and optimizing on OPEX (greater agility, flexibility), you – like many others — might find out it is not necessarily always as easy as it sounds. Users say that the ease of spinning resources on the cloud does not help with server/resource sprawl, but rather it makes it harder to track and manage.

Looking at numerous cloud use patterns, it is clear that stateless web-scale/facing apps are best suited for the cloud – when a VM goes down, simply bring a new one instead. When it comes to onboarding stateful distributed or clustered applications, cloud resources on demand is not really a sufficient solution and significant planning and architecture adaptations are required.

Modern Enterprise apps often characterized by a data heavy/centric nature, relying on Big-Data pipelines or NoSQL databases, have architecture implications that are not easily solvable on the cloud.  

Learn what others are attempting and some already doing to make cloud work given these challenges. The session will include a discussion of the latest trends and best practices as well as guiding points to consider.
