Apache Hadoop is the leading platform for storing, processing and managing “big data”. Please join Arun C. Murthy, Hortonworks co-founder and VP of Apache Hadoop for the Apache Software Foundation, for a discussion about the next generation of Apache Hadoop, known as hadoop-0.23. Attend this session to learn how MapReduce has been re-architected by the community to improve reliability, availability and scalability as well as the ability to support alternate programming paradigms. You will also learn about HDFS Federation, which allows for significant scalability improvements, as well as other important advancements. Arun will also share details about the roadmap and answer questions from the audience about future enhancements to Apache Hadoop.
