Presentation Information

Some of today’s internet software serves millions of users and uses petabytes of data. NoSQL databases and MapReduce algorithms help us make use of large numbers of servers in different locations to manage this data and serve these users. Apache Hadoop provides “open source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing”. Some companies using it are Amazon, EBay, Facebook, Hulu, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Yahoo.

I will give an overview of the Hadoop suite, review a sample java application using some of the technology, and entertain questions and discussion.
