Big Data Contest at Strata + Hadoop World

This article is more than 8 years old.


Strata + Hadoop World New York City is going to be a big week for big data. Canonical are proud to be exabyte sponsors for the upcoming event.

If you’re coming to Strata + Hadoop World, don’t forget to visit our booth and discover the wonders of Juju. Juju is our service modelling tool that will let you build entire cloud environments in just a couple of clicks. In fact, you can see how easy it is to use by testing the demo in your web browser.

Juju opens endless potential for configurations. To demonstrate this, we’ll be hosting a Big Data Contest during Strata + Hadoop World. Come to our designated pod at our booth and create a solution for Big Data Architectures using the Juju GUI. Once you’ve submitted it as a bundle and outlined the documentation, you’ll be entered into the competition. We’ll be judging the solutions based on complexity, problem solving, and real use application. If your solution is chosen, we have some exciting rewards for the winners.

If you’re in top 3, you’ll get to pick between a Bose Soundlink Speaker, a Parrot Rolling Spider, or an Intel Compute Stick Ubuntu Edition. And the 3 next will each get a Xiaomi Mi Band.

We hope to see you at Strata + Hadoop World, and we can’t wait to see what creative solutions you can imagine. When it comes to big data, think big!
