This week, job scheduler Alon Lebenthal flies into the Zoo to talk about workload automation. Managing jobs across multiple, heterogeneous environments is no easy task. And with the introduction of Hadoop and other open-source platforms, you need to be smart about how you store and process data in the enterprise. We talk about the needs of major job scheduling hubs, such as Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminal, and how the same issues affect small and midsize organizations. A former Israeli air force IT employee, Alon shares his view of the London weather and his passion for cooking.
