Elastic Storage - how to manage data in a very large application

  • June 4, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • Yahoo Trondheim

(rescheduled from May 14 due to time constraints - sorry)

Yahoo implement services using very large data sets - sets that are rapidly growing. This meetup will cover the distribution algorithm we use for stateful, elastic systems. We will discuss pros and cons of algorithmic placement and challenges of distributed knowledge of the service states in the cluster. Finally, we will discuss real world use cases to illustrate what it is like to develop and manage services of global scale.

This is a good opportunity to get insights into the inner workings of one of the world's largest search applications - this really is Big Data

Kristian Aune and Tor Brede Vekterli from Yahoo will hold presentations - please suggest other talks we can add to the agenda, too, it could be lightning talks.

    Sorry everyone, but I will be away on the 17th. In case you want to reschedule, I would be available the 3 weeks after that.
    Alternatively, Massimiliano would also have a contribution towards Geospatial Data.

    If you want me to speak about geospatial databases, keep in mind I'll be in the USA between september 8th and 13th (at least).

    For the September meetup, we should schedule if for sometime after the first week, when I am not available.
