We are thrilled to have Jason Atlas presenting on his experience with Apache Cassandra and his use case.

Food/beverage will be served.

Hope you can make it!

What You'll Learn from this Presentation:

• We are dealing with on the order of 50 different data categories and growing

• Each has different formatting, and means of querying

• We have processed up to 800 mbps streams of data with the need to parse and send into Cassandra into the correct repositories and stores

• We have to literally allow almost any possible permutation of working with any element compared to any other element - either at the gross, or atomic level

Presentation Abstract

The internet is really big, and it has some bad neighborhoods and burglars around. Big enterprises have a lot of logging, and the vast majority of it simply eats up space on drives and at Iron Mountain or Amazon Glacier. These logs, and the data across the internet, if you could store it, cross reference and scale it to handle the data without massive joins, and massive iron, will allow us to perform actions that, outside of the largest data centers and capital outlay, were previously impossible.
