Hadoop World: What Dell is up to with Big Data, Open Source and Developers


Besides interviewing a bunch of people at Hadoop World, I also got a chance to sit on the other side of the camera.  On the first day of the conference I got a slot on SiliconANGLE’s the Cube and was interviewed by Dave Vellante, co-founder of Wikibon and John Furrier, founder of SiliconANGLE.

-> Check out the video here.

Some of the ground we cover

  • How Dell got into the cloud/scale-out arena and how that lead us to Big Data
  • (2:08) The details behind the Dell|Cloudera solution for Apache Hadoop and our “secret sauce,” project crowbar.

  • (5:31) Dell’s interest in and strategy around courting developers
  • (7:35) Dell’s strategy of Make, Partner or Buy in the cloud space
