Apache Druid was created at Metamarkets, now part of SnapChat, to solve their low latency, very high concurrency, high dimensionality and high cardinality event data analytics requirements. In this talk, we will cover why the creators of Druid built a new class of operational data store. Core architecture, deployment patterns, and comparison with other analytical tools of today will be discussed.

The speaker will be touching on data ingest and storage mechanisms, partitioning and query methods in Druid.

Rommel Garcia is currently the Director of Solutions Engineering at Imply, a company founded by the same people that created Druid. He is an author of the book Virtualizing Hadoop - How to install. Deploy, and Optimize Hadoop in Virtualized Infrastructure. In the last 10 years, he had worked on Data Management both on-prem and in the cloud, distributed systems, Big Data analytics, and hardware accelerated analytics using GPUs.
