6:00 - 7:00 - Working with Apache Kafka, Apache HDFS, Apache Accumulo and More!

This talk will give a brief overview of Apache Mesos and then focus on using systems like Apache Kafka, Apache Hadoop (specifically HDFS) and Apache Accumulo on Mesos. Apache Mesos is the operating system for your data center and traditionally has been utilized for short lived tasks and long lived tasks that didn't require data persistence. In this talk we will go through what is involved in making Mesos work with long lived tasks requiring data persistence and some of the amazing benefits that you can gain because of it.
