Join us for the inaugural Druid NYC meetup!

Apache Druid (incubating) is a high performance real-time analytics database.

Druid is primarily used to store, query, and analyze large event streams. Examples of event streams include user generated data such as clickstreams, application generated data such as performance metrics, and machine generated data such as network flows and server metrics. Druid is optimized for sub-second queries to slice-and-dice, drill down, search, filter, and aggregate this data. Druid is commonly used to power interactive applications where performance, concurrency, and uptime are important.

Talk 1: Swimming in the data river, or, when “streaming analytics” isn’t

The dirty secret of most “streaming analytics” technologies is that they are just stream processors: they sit on a stream and continuously compute the results of a particular query. They’re good for alerting, keeping a dashboard up-to-date in real time, and streaming ETL, but they’re not good at powering apps that give you true insight into what is happening: for this you need the ability to explore, slice/dice, drill down, and search into the data.This talk will cover the current state of the streaming analytics world, what Druid brings to the table, and some of the technical details behind its design and its integration with Kafka.

Speaker: Gian Merlino
Gian is a cofounder and CTO of Imply, a San Francisco based technology company. Gian is also one of the main committers of Druid. Previously, Gian led the data ingestion team at Metamarkets and held senior engineering positions at Yahoo. He holds a BS in Computer Science from Caltech.
