Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again.
In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ, describes why clusters are so different from farms of single-purpose servers that reside in traditional data centers, and why without an automated solution that can address the cluster requirements, real pain is coming and failure is certain.
Greg Bruno is the Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ. Prior to joining StackIQ, he co-founded the open-source Rocks Cluster Group at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC). He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from UCSD where he researched parallel file systems. Prior to the Rocks Cluster Group, he worked for 10 years at Teradata Systems where he developed cluster management software for the systems that supported the world's largest databases.

The 15th International Cloud Expo has just expanded its conference program, to bring together Cloud Computing, APM, APIs, Security, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps and WebRTC at one location.
The show now has three tracks devoted exclusively to the IoT (with WebRTC present in one of the tracks), a full single track focusing on Big Data, and a two-track DevOps Summit, in addition to four tracks devoted exclusively to Cloud Computing in the enterprise.
Cloud Expo is the single show where delegates and technology vendors can meet to experience and discuss the entire world of the cloud.
With Cloud Computing driving a higher percentage of enterprise IT budgets every year, it becomes increasingly important to learn about the latest technology developments and solutions.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
