The Cleveland Big Data and Hadoop User Group is for those interested in the distributed processing of large amounts of data, focusing heavily on the Hadoop stack.
If you have more data than can comfortably fit on a single server and/or have a processing window that you can't meet processing with a single server, then you should come to our meetings!
This group is industry agnostic and has a mix of classic user-group presentations (e.g., "I tried this out and here is what happened") as well as informative vendor sessions.
Topics include networking, storage (e.g., HDFS, KeyValue storage like HBase), computation (e.g., MapReduce/YARN, graph processing), indexing/search (e.g., Solr), and analytics (e.g., Hive), among others.
If you have an interest in presenting, or have a topic you would like to see presented, contact Doug.
I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
