Best Practices for Optimizing Infrastructure Performance and Budget

I’ll be hosting a webcast next week – featuring Alex Bordei – on a topic that should be of interest to anyone building data applications and data products:

When harnessed correctly, hardware can generate performance improvements in software of up to 60% in an existing setup, with zero or minimal investment.

In this webcast Alex Bordei will look at how Impala, Elasticsearch and Couchbase perform when scaled vertically and horizontally, over a number of different bare metal setups. He’ll discuss testing that produced results that included: going from one hex-core CPU to two deca-core CPUs, from 32 to 192 GB of RAM, from local to distributed storage, and from 2 to 14 instances.
