With the ever increasing need to extract information from large data sources, "Big Data" is becoming very hot. We will have a set of presentations showing how the big data technologies line up for to solve problems. We will cover industry use-cases, challenges driving technologies in this space, architectures for using these technologies, and what some of the main technology options are.
We will also dive into two particular technologies: We will introduce Cassandra as an option for storage - in particular for when you need high scalability and for fault-tolerance on commodity hardware (or cloud infrastructure). For processing options we will introduce Spark for fast large-scale data processing using an intuitive and unified API.
