In this Video

In this introductory Big Data briefing session, Red Hat's Will Benton gave an overview into Big Data architecture and concepts to help level the playing field. This video will give us a better understanding of what a data-intensive application should actually look like on a modern container orchestration platform, and to help kick off the OpenShift Common Big Data SIG.

In this recording, you’ll learn about the anatomy of data-intensive applications, how they come to life, and what they have to accomplish. We walked through a few applications and explored their responsibilities, saw how they use data, discuss trade-offs they must negotiate, and point to some example architectures that make sense for realizing data-intensive applications on OpenShift.
