Trends in Data Orchestration
JOIN US: This is a chat-based conversation about what we're seeing in the organization of all that data we're collecting. Data orchestration--using Kubernetes or other platforms--is a key topic right about now. We'll have expert guest hosts!

Q1: How is your company using data orchestration? What business values are you deriving?
Sam Lakkundi
A1. At @BMCSoftware, we use #dataorchestration to bring our #data closer to compute across clusters, regions, clouds, and countries #eweekchat
Chris Preimesberger
Hi Sam, and welcome. What advantages are there in bringing compute closer to the data store itself?
Scality
A1. I can speak for a couple of our customers and open source users. We see people orchestrating data between legacy and modern applications - example, media company with a legacy FTP-based app orchestrating data up to cloud services.
Sean Knapp
A1. At @ascend_io, #dataorchestration is at the heart of our product, and what we also use internally to collect data across disparate systems & clouds, perform complex transformations & modeling (for #analytics and #datascience), and even automate #datagovernance.
Alex Ma
Bringing the data from the datastore itself, closer to the compute or local to the compute has a number of advantages. Reduces network latency, increases throughput for the application itself and minimizes overhead with communicating to the datastore.
Dipti Borkar
A1. At @alluxio , we focus on bringing #dataorchestration to our users, for hybrid cloud and multi cloud environments. Data Orchestration is accelerating compute with remote data and unify data access.
Sam Lakkundi
hi Chris, data orchestration in general simplifies data ecosystems due to new frameworks, cloud adoption/migration, as well as the rise of data-driven and demanded applications #eweekchat
Scality
A1. Business value of #dataorchestration can range from delivering new services to business continuity / DR.
Dipti Borkar
A1. Users like DBS Bank and Walmart, have data on-prem. Accessing this data in other remote environments can be a big challenge and these users and others, use @alluxio 's "Zero-copy" bursting approach to bring data to the cloud to accelerate #bigdata compute
Eric Kavanagh on #DMRadio
@dborkar I love @Alluxio's approach of creating a virtual cache of data that connects on-prem environments to each other, and to the cloud. As such, it enables high-powered analytics on data that's scattered across multiple locations. #DataOrchestration #eWeekChat

JOIN US: This is a chat-based conversation about how IT is rapidly evolving into a new phase that may turn out to be as important as, if not more important than, the cloud itself.

Please use this convention: To address Q1, please begin your answer with "A1." In this manner, all the questions and answers can be kept in the same thread.
Chris Preimesberger
I will ask some seed questions--about one every 8 to 10 minutes--and our guests can answer as they see fit. Others following the conversation also may participate. Let's stay on topic at all times.
Chris Preimesberger
Hope you all can get into this chat room easily... John Furrier has put together a very cool app here!
Christopher Merz
Seems to be working great
