Technical Situation:

Client was facing slowdown in their day to day business activities as their Hadoop Cluster was not stable and also goes down for longer duration. It had major performance issues as it would fail to perform to the meet the client SLA and impact the business users. It used to take 4 hours for processing the data. Also there was need for client’s Big Data to be migrated from Traditional different sources of Databases to Hadoop. It was a major migration for one of the biggest retailer. They needed help in performance tuning of their Hadoop system and Migrating of data from Traditional legacy different sources to Hadoop.

Openmind Solution:

  • Openmind Team worked with the client hand in hand to help the delivery team with respect to the Big data system performance tuning and migrations.
