Real-time Analytics using Cassandra, Spark and Shark at Ooyala

At this upcoming meetup we're excited to have Evan Chan, Software Engineer at Ooyala, present on real-time analytics using Cassandra, Spark & Shark at Ooyala.

Food/beverage will be served.

Hope you can make it!

What You Will Learn At This Meetup:

• Review of Cassandra analytics landscape: Hadoop & HIVE

• Custom input formats to extract data from Cassandra

• How Spark & Shark increase query speed & productivity over standard solutions


This session covers our experience with using the Spark and Shark frameworks for running real-time queries on top of Cassandra data.We will start by surveying the current Cassandra analytics landscape, including Hadoop and HIVE, and touch on the use of custom input formats to extract data from Cassandra. We will then dive into Spark and Shark, two memory-based cluster computing frameworks, and how they enable often dramatic improvements in query speed and productivity, over the standard solutions today.

    Could have gone more into the details of the implementation rather than just a 30000 ft view of the solution.

    Love to be there but am going to an IBM Big Data meetup on managing z/OS logging using Hadoop. Too many great meetups, so little time.

    Hi, I would like to join the meetup, but it is far away from what I am living. Will be any online video after/during the meetup?

      Hey Jack, we may have a video recording of the session but will definitely share the slides.
