EMC World 2015 is just two weeks away! If you plan on attending this event in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 4-7, you’ll have several opportunities for getting in-depth Isilon information through virtual labs and technology sessions.

Virtual labs

The virtual lab (vLab) experience at EMC World offers two types of labs: self-paced and instructor-led. Anyone can sign up for the self-paced labs, which are available Monday through Thursday, on a first-come, first-served basis. To attend an instructor-led lab, register onsite by visiting the EMC vLab registration desk in The Village at EMC World.

There will be three labs featuring Isilon products.

  • Deploying Hadoop on Isilon (instructor-led; register onsite)
    Deploying Hadoop on Isilon will provide you with hands-on experience with deploying and testing a Hadoop cluster using Isilon. This is a quick walkthrough of key parts of the Hadoop Starter Kit for Isilon.
  • Isilon Overview with InsightIQ (self-paced; first-come, first-served)
    Isilon Overview with InsightIQ will show you the simplicity of setup, scaleout storage, and the ease of management, availability, and even SmartLock mode (WORM) storage. Enhanced with an overview of InsightIQ, our powerful monitoring and reporting software that maximizes your time by minimizing storage management.
  • The Isilon Data Lake with Sparks and & HBase (self-paced; first-come, first-served)
    The Isilon Data Lake will demonstrate some of the key features of Isilon in a data lake environment, including multiprotocol access, access control lists, and access zones. You’ll see these features in action as you walk through a complete analytics use-case that integrates Apache Spark, Apache HBase, and simple Python scripts.

Technology Breakout Sessions

Breakout sessions occur throughout the conference. There are six technology breakout sessions dedicated to Isilon products, and several more that show how Isilon can be an integral part of emerging technology solutions. These sessions range in technical level of information from introductory to advanced. Visit the session catalog for scheduling options.

Find our booth

If you missed the technology session you wanted to attend or couldn’t get on the schedule for a vLab, stop by booth 813. You’ll find Isilon representatives at product kiosks who can walk you through short, 10-minute presentations and product demonstrations. We look forward to seeing you there!
