    Thanks for arranging it Joe. Very good demo...
    Awesome food and beverages, Simulmedia-- thanks for hosting. Thanks Ben for sharing your knowledge on Redis.

    Quick question for Elliott:
    1) Have you tried Hive using ORC format and compared the results with Impala and Parquet in RC file format?
    2) Impala runs OOM when using multiple joins. Have you come across this problem?
    3) What would be the difference if CBO is used?
    4) What compression algorithms have you used?

    Ben, I am exploring Redis and CouchBase among other databases for certain specific requirements.
    1) Any idea how MVCC can be supported in Redis
    2) Also, have you found queries executing slower due to multiple joins or secondary indexing?
    3) How are you backing up the data in Redis
    4) When you are targeting specific customers with particular ads, do you take geospatiality into consideration? If yes, how can that be managed?

    Thanks again for the great presentations....

      Couple of things on Impala, I am not sure. I think ORC file format is better: http://docs.hortonwor...­.... We will discuss in person next time. It is good to exchange ideas and learn from what others are doing.
