MapR Technologies Chief Application Architect Ted Dunning to Present at SNW Spring on Big Data Storage
San Jose, CA

MapR Technologies, Inc., the provider of the industry's most advanced distribution for Apache Hadoop, today announced today that Chief Application Architect Ted Dunning will be a featured speaker at SNW Spring, taking place on April 2 - 5, 2012 at the Omni Dallas Hotel in Dallas, TX.

The session entitled: "Hadoop – Big Data storage for 1/10th the cost," will be held on Tuesday, April 3 at 10:45 a.m. Mr. Dunning will examine new innovative approaches to better leverage Hadoop in order to address Big Data's full potential. This presentation will discuss ease of administration, data protection and performance in order to help storage administrators evaluate Hadoop as a network-based system for storing and analyzing.
 
"As the amount of data generated continues to explode, the ability to dig deep into it and analyze it becomes critical for accurate and effective decision-making," said Ted Dunning. "In order to better uncover valuable information contained within the data, companies are increasingly turning to Hadoop to unlock the hidden value and patterns inherent in the data. With Hadoop, data is processed in place and only results are sent over the network. This is in contrast to slower, less scalable approaches where data is stored on physical disks making evaluation a time-consuming, complex, expensive process and identifying critical data patterns hard to find."
