Making Production Hadoop Faster, Easier and More Productive: ODPi Member Conversation with Zettaset

By June 15, 2017Blog

In our fifth ODPi Member Conversation podcast, John Mertic spoke with Zettaset’s Director of Product Management, Sesh Ramaswami, and CMO, John Armstrong.

Their multi-perspective discourse covered off on the security challenges of deploying Hadoop in production, data governance and security expectations, along with how nonprofit organizations like OASIS and ODPi can help drive standards for the big data ecosystem.

Touching on big data security within production environments, Ramaswami dove right into enterprise expectations around data governance and data processing.

Referring to the role data governance plays in the Hadoop ecosystem, Armstrong noted that security wasn’t always a concern, as data was in isolation away from production.

However, the space has changed drastically over the years. Touching on this shift, Armstrong said, “When [enterprises] finally want to move into production, and want to take those data environments and put them into the mainstream… we need to have some real security in place before you plug into the rest of the network —  because Hadoop coexists in large enterprise environments in conjunction with relational database environments, maybe other NoSQL, so it’s not alone and it has to play well with others.”
