We are pleased to have Subash DSouza speaking in July's session. I ran into Subash @HadoopSummit and he has gracefully accepted to present to us Yarn/Hadoop 2.0, new features, how it is compared to M/R 1.0, and do a demo, then we will have an open discussion on what are some of the possible use cases for it in HealthIT.
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 to be released by packt publishing.
