Big Data Analytics and Docker: The Thrilla in Manila

Docker containers are an ideal platform for the Big Data analytics use case because of their unique security and performance advantages.  Big Data work loads typically use distributed file systems to provide shared access to both input and output data sets. OpenStack Manila is an excellent way to manage distributed file systems in the Cloud environment. Applications like Spark and Hadoop add the analytics engine to complete the picture.


In this talk, we describe how we use Manila, Nova-docker and our distributed file system to allow Big Data clients in OpenStack, distributed across various compute nodes, to access large amounts of data in a shared, load-balanced and multi-tenant fashion.  We will discuss our experience deploying this cloud service, in use today by a collection universities, and provide a brief demo.
