2010 September 23rd Meeting

Our next meeting will be held on the 23rd of September at Pervasive

This month's meeting focus is on Performance and Throughput for Big Data. This event is free and open to everyone. We have lots of people that come that are new to Hadoop and Big Data.


6:30 - 7:00 : Meet and Greet (Austin's Pizza, Quality Beer and Tacos)

7:00 - 7:30 : "Realtime Classification at Scale"

Click Forensics helps large ad networks and online advertisers improve traffic acquisition and monetization. Next to working with Hadoop and very large data sets, some of our customers have strong real-time requirements. In this presentation, Click Forensics will outline how they created a real-time classifier that allows for 1 billion scoring transactions per server per day on commodity hardware with response latencies under 1 ms.

7:30 - 8:00 : "Revolutionary performance in Big Data crunching: New benchmarks using a Hadoop Appliance, and leveraging HBase and Pervasive DataRush together"

Mike Hoskins, Pervasive CTO, describes his Innovation Lab’s work on big data analytics, illustrated with Genomic and Weblog benchmarks – reflecting both absolute throughput, and green-efficiency. We’ll look at how we are combining Pervasive DataRush (delivers fine-grained, thread-level massive parallelism on multicore, with auto-scaling and simple dataflow programming model, see:, with HDFS and HBase. The result: 200-300x price/performance gains over traditional cluster implementations.
