Dr. Matthias Broecheler (linkedin), Project lead for the Titan graph database and CTO of Aurelius, is coming to NYC to teach a full day workshop on Titan.
We asked Matthias if he would spend an evening speaking to the NYC Cassandra group about Titan and Cassandra. As many of you know, Cassandra is the preferred back-end for Titan.
For those of you unfamiliar, Titan is a scalable graph database optimized for storing and querying graphs containing hundreds of billions of vertices and edges distributed across a multi-machine cluster. Titan is a transactional database that can support thousands of concurrent users executing complex graph traversals.
In addition, Titan provides the following features: Elastic and linear scalability for a growing data and user base, data distribution and replication for performance and fault tolerance, multi-datacenter high availability and hot backups, and support for ACID and eventual consistency.
For those of you already familiar with Titan, you may wish to also join Matthias for the full day Titan workshop in Manhattan:
We've been trying to get Matthias to NYC for a few years now. This is a great opportunity to learn about Titan.
