Event Details

Due to the number of RSVPs, we are moving the event to Pervasive Software. Here's a map.


This meeting is organized by GeekAustin and co-hosted by the Cassandra Austin meetup and the Austin Big Data User Group.

Tyler Hobbs from DataStax will be presenting on Brisk:

Brisk is an open-source Hadoop and Hive distribution developed by DataStax that utilizes Apache Cassandra for its core services and storage. Brisk provides Hadoop MapReduce capabilities using CassandraFS, an HDFS-compatible storage layer inside Cassandra. By replacing HDFS with CassandraFS, users are able to leverage their current MapReduce jobs on Cassandra’s peer-to-peer, fault-tolerant, and scalable architecture. Brisk is also able to support dual workloads, allowing you to use the same cluster of machines for both real-time applications and data analytics without having to move the data around between systems.

Tyler Hobbs is a software engineer at DataStax. In addition to helping customers design efficient data models for their applications, he also develops cluster management software and maintains the Python and PHP client libraries for Cassandra. Tyler also contributes to Cassandra itself.
