Hands On Product Demos

11.15 & 15.45 - Build your own Cloud

Increasingly, application developers are taking advantage of the scalability and flexibility of deploying in the cloud. This experience focuses on the process of quickly defining and creating a multi-node infrastructure in a top IaaS provider. Using InterSystems’ new cloud provisioning tool, learners will provision a multi-node infrastructure, connect to the new instances, and run commands. Then (because often there isn’t a permanent need for resources) they will un-provision all of the instances.

11.55 & 16.25 - Hands on with Spark

Apache Spark is an open-source, cluster-computing framework that is gaining popularity for analytics, particularly predictive analytics and machine learning. This experience allows learners to use InterSystems’ connector for Apache Spark to analyze data in a multi-node sharded architecture. Through hands-on exercises, they will analyze data using a Zeppelin notebook, load additional data, and see how their data is incorporated in the analytics.
