CloudxLab Introduction

What is CloudxLab?

CloudxLab is a cloud based virtual lab for practicing Big Data (Hadoop, Spark etc), Machine Learning and Deep Learning technologies.

Origins

While training students on Big Data technologies at KnowBigData, we realized that our learners were facing a lot of trouble downloading and configuring virtual machines (VM) provided by major Hadoop vendors. Most often, these virtual machines were slow and would not allow for use of any other application on the same computer.

Moreover, working on a VM did not give a real world experience as one is still dealing with only one machine instead of a cluster of machines which is the whole idea of Big Data technologies which are primarily based on distributed computing.

This is how CloudxLab was conceptualized in an effort to resolve these pain points of learners. The video below will help understand how one of our clients – Simplilearn – is using CloudxLab to provide a better learning experience to their course takers.
