Druid: Interactive Queries Meet Real-time Data

Beyond Hadoop Great America Ballroom J

On-the-fly aggregation with human-time (or “interactive”) queries against fresh, at-the-moment data represents a growing trend. Many newly announced systems are starting to provide interactive queries on batched data streams. This talk will discuss how Druid allows users to have interactive queries on real-time data at scale; we feature a case study with Netflix leveraging Druid to obtain at-the-moment insight as it ingests over two terabytes per hour.
