 Speaker/talk details:

Near Real Time Processing of High Value Messages
Often NRT systems trade accuracy for speed, accepting "at least once" deliveries, weak or nonexistent transactions or other compromises in pursuit of immediacy.  And often this is fine.  But what about when it isn't?  How can you balance fault tolerance requirements with the need for speed when it comes to messages you absolutely cannot drop?  I'll be covering how this comes up at KIXEYE and how we have approached the problem so far.

Speaker Bio

Chris Mills has been coding since grade school.  Unable to conclusively decide between science and engineering, he has worked on projects in genetics, natural language processing, distance learning, content syndication, automated categorization, and recommender systems.  He loves games and puzzles of all sorts, and thinks that the intersection of Big Data and human behavior offers some of the very best puzzles available.  He is currently the Principal Architect for Analytics Engineering at KIXEYE.

Real-Time Big Data at In-Memory Speed, Using Storm

Storm, a popular framework from Twitter, is used for real-time event processing. The challenge presented is how to manage the state of your real-time data processing at all times. In addition, you need Storm to integrate with your batch processing system (such as Hadoop) in a consistent manner. This session will demonstrate how to integrate Storm with an in-memory database/grid, and explore various strategies for integrating the data grid with Hadoop and Cassandra, seamlessly. By achieving smooth integration with consistent management, you will be able to easily manage all the tiers of you Big Data stack in a consistent and effective way.

    Hi - great idea, thanks. I've signed up, but I have a question: your invitation says the pass is good for exhibits and keynote (I particularly want to hear Adrian/ Netflix) but when I used the code and got the NoSQL NOW pass, it says "Exhibits only". Can you clarify?

    • geoff h.

      The meetup passes say “exhibit only” but they include access to all three keynotes listed above. So yes, you can see Adrian Cockcroft from Netflix.
