Shopzilla's Subash D'Souza presents Hadoop 2.0 and Yarn

Subash DSouza presents Hadoop 2.0 and YARN

Unfortunately Rick Warren is under the weather and unable to speak to us tonight.  Instead we will have Subash DSouza speak to us about Hadoop 2.0 and YARN!


7:00 pm: meet, greet & eat

7:30 pm: main presentation

Q&A after the talk


What is YARN? How it differs from Hadoop 1.0? YARN is a new framework for writing distributed frameworks and applications. YARN stands for “Yet Another Resource Negotiator” and began as a re-architecting effort for solving issues observed with the previous Hadoop Map-Reduce framework on large distributed clusters – particularly with JobTracker. YARN was engineered to resolve some of the deficiencies with Job Tracker. This talk will give a high level overview of these changes as well as some the features to look forward with the imminent release of Hadoop 2.0 GA


Subash DSouza is the organizer for the LA HBase User group and Co-Organizer for the LA Hadoop User Group. He has been using Hadoop and Big Data for the past 3 years. Working in the online advertising space, he has been familiar with the problems faced by traditional RDBMS in terms of scaling and realized soon on that Hadoop was a good fit to problems in that space. He is also the reviewer for Apache Flume: Distributed Log soon recently released by packt publishing. He currently works at Shopzilla.
