What: Saturnalia DB - A distributed time series database designed for stats & analytics
When: Wednesday, September 14, 2011, 6:30 PM
Where: CBS Interactive - 235 2nd St San Francisco, CA
We'll introduce Saturnalia DB, an Open Source stats and analytics database we've designed at StatMover for use with managing server operations.
When operating a large production application, we were constantly needing to monitor millions of performance statistics. Existing tools (such as Ganglia and Munin) did not scale and we decided to build a new database specifically for handling this task.
Jonathan Moore (blog) is the CTO of StatMover and a Software Engineer with over 15 year of database and systems engineering experience. In the past, Jonathan designed a large scale graph database at Hi5 to maintain social graph connections as well as high capacity distributed web crawling and indexing technologies used at Spinn3r. In his spare time Jonathan also contributes to the tech community by being one of the organizers of CodeCon.
