Big Data and Cloud at the Intersection
Big data and new enterprise cloud architectures are revolutionizing every industry in every country in the world. “At The Intersection” is a new kind of Web TV show, sponsored by Intel and EMC, that finds and explores the cutting edge of these trailblazing new technologies and the fascinating gurus driving them.
Hosted by Ken Jennings, a popular tech blogger (and all-time Jeopardy! champ), the show offers direct audience access and live Twitter interaction with the tech rock stars who are driving these massive changes. Each lively episode features a leading company in a specific industry, and then discusses other industry examples to illustrate the broader trend.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology calls it a Community Cloud – and we think it’s the fourth wave of Cloud Computing.
The pilot episode explores how Jaguar Land Rover and lead designer Gerry McGovern are making use of big data through the capabilities of HPC clusters and EMC Isilon scale-out storage systems to revolutionize design, visualization, and simulation, as they did for the award-winning Range Rover Evoque*.
