Hadoop & Beyond
Location: 210 A/E

Evolution wasn’t supposed to work at this pace.

With hundreds of developers from a variety of organizations participating, Hadoop moves quickly. In the past 12 months, we’ve seen major feature and functionality additions to the core platform as well as new elements entering and becoming standard parts of a Hadoop deployment.

This talk will survey the important changes admins and users should be aware of and their impacts to various use cases. We will cover all aspects of the Hadoop stack including:
- Core storage – HDFS, HBase
- Development frameworks like Spark, MapReduce
- Resource Management on Hadoop with YARN, LLama and other efforts
- Ingest tools including Flume, Sqoop, Kafka
- Data Processing frameworks such as Hive, Solr, Impala & Pig
- Access tools – Hue

At the end of this talk, you should be able to come away with a good grasp of how Hadoop has evolved recently and which features may be applicable to your environment.
