Running Hadoop clusters with 1000+ nodes & processing petabytes of data is something that Ashish and his team did at Facebook on a daily basis, as it grew into a colossal site across geographical boundaries.
These experiences, the in-depth knowledge & lessons learned is something that Ashish would be discussing in our next “BigDataCloud Gurus” meetup.
Sticking to our meetup’s format, there will be no formal presentations but just the white board, Ashish and you!
The event is hosted & snacks & drinks are provided by Third Eye.
