RSVP Required – Configuring, deploying, and managing Big Data infrastructure, Hadoop in particular, is time consuming and expensive. Infochimps’ Ironfan is an open source systems configuration suite for the cloud, quickly and easily orchestrating an entire Big Data stack including data ingestion, scraping, storage, computation, and monitoring. With Ironfan, you can spin up clusters when you need them and turn them off when you don’t, enabling you to spend your time, money, and engineering focus on finding insights and creating value, not getting your machines ready. In this workshop, we will go from a single development machine to a full-stack cloud deployment. Everyone will set up their own Ironfan deployment environment, stand up some simple servers to demonstrate the basics of Ironfan and Silverware (our core deployment libraries), and then dive into the deep end with a Hadoop deployment (and more, if time allows).
