Implementing and scaling Hadoop to analyze large quantities of data is enormously complicated. Unforeseen, very challenging problems are to be expected. However, if you can learn to recognize the problems before a fire starts, you can prevent your hair (and your Hadoop implementation) from igniting.
From the Hadoop experts at Altiscale, here are some of the danger signs and problems you should watch out for, as well as real-world lessons learned for heading them off.

It’s important to provide effective inbound and outbound network
traffic control to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate
requests. Effectively managing, monitoring, controlling, and
filtering network traffic are key actions that can help do so and
further enable a robust cloud security infrastructure.
Filtering Cloud Network Traffic and Preventing Threats
Artifi cial intelligence is becoming a key component of business transformation. Virtually any business leader seeking to unlock value and develop new capabilities using technology is at some stage of the AI journey. For example, those at the leading edge have incorporated machine learning insights into business processes and are building functionality such as natural language processing and preventative maintenance diagnostics into their products. Others are experimenting with pilot projects or developing plans to get started.

As a small business owner, it’s easy to get wrapped up in what needs to be done today, because it is what’s sitting directly in front of you. It’s so immediate and urgent, so how can you ignore it? However, to prepare for long-term success, business owners have to be willing to consider the larger picture and plan for the future. We focus on the top 7 threats you need to consider – and take action upon now – to protect your small business.

Incentive compensation represents the potential of delivering optimal sales results. But with up to 60% of sales reps’ income coming from incentive comp, it is crucial to get this right. Our study data has shown that ineffective compensation structures can lead to disengaged reps, high turnover, money left on the table, and low margins. The way we have designed and managed incentive compensation plans in the past may inhibit the sales force and prevent the business from scaling at the needed rate. Modeling and planning quickly become too complex for a spreadsheet-driven exercise.

To support these principles, Anaplan was deliberately crafted as a highly distributed global company that allows for significant resiliency against threats and disasters. All functions within Anaplan are geographically distributed across the globe, reducing risks associated with regional events.
The U.S. offices host most of the sales, marketing, and support activities. Staff in the U.K. and Singapore offices provide regional coverage, in addition to backup support.
The pressure is mounting and employers are feeling the pinch. As U.S. health care costs continue their seemingly inexorable rise, businesses are looking for ways to wrest greater value from their health care spend.
More and more, employers are looking for benefits strategies that help prevent chronic disease and, if it is present, encourage early, efficient treatment. The brass ring is getting employees to proactively manage their own health by adopting healthy behaviors, such as exercising and eating healthily. It’s better for the employees, it increases productivity, and it reduces health care expenditures.
So how are organizations today looking to craft health and well-being plans that deliver real results for employers and employees alike? This white paper looks at three key areas where new and innovative approaches are changing the equation.
Voice Over IP (VoIP) deployments can cause unexpected or unplanned power and cooling
requirements in wiring closets and wiring rooms. Most wiring closets do not have
uninterruptible power available, and they do not provide the ventilation or cooling required to prevent equipment overheating. Understanding the unique cooling and powering needs of VoIP equipment allows planning for a successful and cost effective VoIP deployment. This paper explains how to plan for VoIP power and cooling needs, and describes simple, fast, reliable, and cost effective strategies for upgrading old facilities and building new facilities.
Cooling for IT wiring closets is rarely planned and typically only implemented after failures or overheating occur. Historically, no clear standard exists for specifying sufficient cooling to achieve predictable behavior within wiring closets. An appropriate specification for cooling IT wiring closets should assure compatibility with anticipated loads, provide unambiguous instruction for design and installation of cooling equipment, prevent oversizing, maximize electrical efficiency, and be flexible enough to work in various shapes and types of closets. This paper describes the science and practical application of an improved method for the specification of cooling for wiring closets.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

Let’s face it, users are impatient. They demand a blazingly fast experience and accept no substitutes. While the effects of poor performance are obvious, it makes one wonder about the relationship between client latency and the “perception of speed”. After all, the user can trigger many state change events (page load, submit a form, interact with a visualization, etc.) and all these events have an associated latency to the client. However, are certain types of latency more noticeable to the user then others?

BearingPoint wanted a “one-stop-shop” for its growing marketing organization that was easy to setup and didn’t require a lot of resources. A tool was needed to help with the wide-range of marketing activities that satisfied the needs of the entire marketing team. This system needed to easily handle financial and legal requests, capture campaign and event data, support creative development and reduce manual processes that contributed to the lagging of concrete knowledge of their marketing budgets and spending at any given point in time.
This paper examines the key performance aspects of low bit rate audio codecs for the next generation of bandwidth-efficient digital wireless microphone systems that meet the future needs of live events.
In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.
As the world becomes more connected, it is no longer enough for enterprises to react once an alert indicates an attacker is inside the network. Instead, with continuous packet capture and threat feeds followed by analysis, it is now possible to hunt the attackers and locate them versus waiting for an alert.
Having the right tools and establishing key processes in advance can help prevent or mitigate the impact of a DDoS attack. Learn more by downloading this complimentary toolkit with research and best practices from Gartner and Arbor Networks.
