August 2013 Meeting - Exploring Apache Hadoop

August 2013 Meeting
Unless you have been under the proverbial (technology) rock , you would have heard or read something about Hadoop.  Hadoop can do this... Hadoop can do that ... Only Hadoop can save you from the big data flood... Etc. For the August meeting, we will weed through the hype and take a high-level excursion to explore Hadoop and its technologies.

NOTE: The August meeting is schedule for next week Tuesday August 27.

Exploring Apache Hadoop
Hadoop is a set of open source technologies that collectively provide a platform for distributed computing and storage.  While it's probably best known for MapReduce, Hadoop is becoming the go-to platform for augmenting the enterprise's ability to handle moderate to massive amount of data.  In this discussion, we are going to address the following topics (as time allows):
  • Introduction to Hadoop
  • Data Processing with MapReduce
  • Other Hadoop Data Processing Tools
  • Standing a Hadoop Infrastructure
  • Common Hadoop Architectures/Usage Patterns
  • Hadoop in the Future
Disclaimer: the breath and depth of each Hadoop component alone is deserving of a week+ of treatment.  Needless to say the information in this 1 to 1.5 hr session will be at a very high level.  If you have already gone through exercise of standing up Hadoop for your organization and are familiar with the ecosystem, this may be too introductory of a material for you.
