Leverage Big Data ’15 – Data-Driven Infrastructure: The Engines of Big Data
Leverage Big Data 2015 is scheduled for March 16 -
18 at the Ponte Vedra Beach Inn & Club, Ponte Vedra Beach,
Leverage Big Data Summit 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 emphasized that big data
infrastructure means far more than simply looking closely at
hardware (or software) components without context.
At Leverage Big Data '15 prequalified attendees will once again
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
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 '15
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 '15 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
