Dissecting Scalable Database Architectures


Who is Doug Judd?

Doug is co-founder and CEO of Hypertable, Inc, a company that provides professional services for Hypertable, a high performance, scalable, NoSQL database.  He started the Hypertable project and led the Hypertable development team at Zvents, prior to spinning it out to form Hypertable, Inc.  Doug first gained big data experience when he joined Inktomi's Web Search division in 1997.  There he held both management and engineering positions and was a driving force behind the development of the company's distributed crawling and indexing infrastrucutre.  Doug earned a B.S. in Computer Science from U.C. Santa Barbara in 1992 and holds four patents in search technology. 

What is the talk about?

A new breed of database has emerged over the recent past whose primary innovation has been to solve the horizontal scalability problem. There has been a Cambrian-like explosion of new open source scalable database projects, including Cassandra, HBase, Hypertable, MongoDB, Riak, and Voldemort.  In this talk, Doug Judd, the creator of Hypertable, will explore some of the highly influential scalable database architectures behind these open source projects.  He will provide a high level overview, highlight their strengths and weaknesses, and provide projections of how they may evolve into the future.
