Leverage Big Data ’14 – Data-Driven Infrastructure: The Engines of Big Data
Leverage Big Data 2014 is scheduled for May 20 -
22 at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in San Diego,
Leverage Big Data 2014 is an invitation-only hosted summit
designed to bring leaders in advanced computing together to discuss
the infrastructure challenges that organizations face as they
navigate the build-out of Big Data systems. This summit provides
exclusive opportunity for technology leaders in the process of
refining and scaling their infrastructures for big data workflows
to share their experiences and learn from peers and solution
providers actively engaged in addressing these challenges.
Produced by Datanami, a premier online portal that serves as a
trusted source for coverage and analysis of advanced big data and
performance-tuned systems and software, along with nGage Events,
the leader in hosted model events, the Leverage Big Data '14 Summit
will provide an in-depth look at the diverse array of
infrastructure approaches in Big Data.
During Leverage Big Data '14, we will emphasize that big data
infrastructure means far more than simply looking closely at
hardware (or software) components without context.
Prequalified attendees will meet and learn from leaders in the
Big Data space and come away with practical knowledge on everything
from converged systems and boxed appliance solutions to storage and
compute and how these systems can help them better extract value
from their data (and data environment).
To ensure that Leverage offers the highest degree of relevancy
for attendees, only senior executives responsible for the
purchasing and implementation are invited. This exclusive
format allows industry leaders to connect with peers to network,
share stories, experiences, and solution possibilities. All
qualified executives receive a full participation package that
includes travel, hotel accommodations, meals and networking
activities. This ensures a cost-effective and quality peer-to-peer
experience for attendees. Leverage has limited attendance,
and is designed around an intimate group concept.
Focused on the infrastructure challenges organizations face in
the modern advanced computing environment, Leverage Big Data '14
will open the hood on multiple systems, approaches, and management
frameworks to give engaged, qualified users an inside look at the
engines of Big Data.
Leverage Big Data '14 is dedicated to providing a rich
understanding on the comprehensive array of infrastructure
approaches to those hungry for advanced enterprise computing
solutions. This will be facilitated through the peer-to-peer
sharing of experiences and infrastructure needs in an intimate
