Title: How to integrate Hadoop with your NoSQL/Operational database?

Abstract: We ask much more of our data than ever before. Not only does it need to be available in milliseconds when requested, but we also want to be able to extract every last bit of intelligence from the data to make decisions, which make our applications more effective.

During this presentation you will see how a mix of Hadoop and a NoSQL engine, such as Couchbase, to create an Ad-Targeting platform to analyze billions of user-related events and millions of user profiles, and deliver the correct ad in a handful of milliseconds. Based on this concrete example you will see how these technologies provide you with all of the tools to deal with new types of applications and scale- up (in terms of data or users).

This presentation is beneficial for any attendee; as they will learn from a production large-scale use case:

  • The challenges of new applications dealing with Big Data (especially how to deliver them quickly)
  • The differences between the “Analytical” part of the system (Hadoop) and the “Operational” part (Couchbase)

This type of deployment has been used by various Couchbase customers such as AOL Advertizing and Tubemongul

During the Warm up Event we will make a draw for one free ticket for the NoSQL Search Copenhagen 2013!
