  • Duration: One hour
  • Experience Needed to Understand Talk: Developer familiar with Cassandra
  • Details: The state of analytics has changed dramatically over the last few years. Hadoop is now commonplace, and the ecosystem has evolved to include new tools such as Spark, Shark, and Drill, that live alongside the old MapReduce-based standards. It can be difficult to keep up with the pace of change, and newcomers are left with a dizzying variety of seemingly similar choices. This is compounded by the number of possible deployment permutations, which can cause all but the most determined to simply stick with the tried and true. But there are serious advantages to many of the new tools, and this presentation will give an analysis of the current state--including pros and cons as well as what's needed to bootstrap and operate the various options.
