Jake Luciani from DataStax will be presenting on Brisk:
Brisk is an open-source Hadoop and Hive distribution developed by DataStax that utilizes Apache Cassandra for its core services and storage. Brisk provides Hadoop MapReduce capabilities using CassandraFS, an HDFS-compatible storage layer inside Cassandra. By replacing HDFS with CassandraFS, users are able to leverage their current MapReduce jobs on Cassandra’s peer-to-peer, fault-tolerant, and scalable architecture. Brisk is also able to support dual workloads, allowing you to use the same cluster of machines for both real-time applications and data analytics without having to move the data around between systems.
This meetup is done with in collaboration with the NYC Cassandra User Group.
6:30pm: Doors open for some chatting and networking
