Turning the Tables with InfiniDB for Hadoop

This month's speaker is Jim Tommaney (CTO, Calpont). He will be speaking on the following topic. 

Turning the Tables with InfiniDB for Hadoop

Learn about the InfiniDB for Hadoop technology and it’s place in the Big Data ecosystem.

InfiniDB offers an Open Source analytics engine that runs as a non-map/reduce engine on an existing HDP or CDH distribution, reading and writing to HDFS.  Engineered to deliver extremely high performance for dimensional analysis and analytic queries at scale, InfiniDB partitions data internally both vertically (by columns) and horizontally by range of rows.  The custom distribution of work is written in C++ to allow distribution of jobs across all available cores in a Hadoop cluster. 

However, the technology is tuned specifically for analytic reporting, and has trade-offs for other workloads.  We will discuss appropriate workloads for InfiniDB for Hadoop and related technologies like Impala + Parquet. 

Big Data Bellevue Meetup takes place at inome headquarters in Bellevue. inome provides the only centralized service for delivering comprehensive information about people, places, organizations, and their connection to each other.
