Druid is a distributed, column-oriented, real-time, interactive analytical datastore. It was created to allow consistently fast, multidimensional ad-hoc drill-down type querying for large quantities of data - in real time.
If you're searching for a solution beyond what proprietary column oriented, or in memory data stores offer both in price and capability - then join us.
The London User Group is dedicated to bringing together users and developers of Druid to exchange knowledge, insight, and spur the adoption of Druid for innovative research and commercial applications.
For those of you coming to the Apache Kafka summit on the 13th / 14th May, come and say hi! My colleague will be giving this talk on using Apache Druid and Apache Kafka to power interactive, real-time data exploration on router data.
Come along and enjoy suitable fluid-based refreshment in a public house (to be determined). This'll be a great chance to ask anything of Rachel and Eric - Apache Druid Gurus - after their talks at the Apache Kafka Summit, and to share your experiences and learnings with other Druids!
