SQL On Hadoop TalkSince early days, the Hadoop community has made several attempts to stretch Hadoop beyond its role as a distributed programming framework. The key strength that Hadoop brings to the table is its ability to scale linearly. Can we combine this advantage of Hadoop with the efficiency of databases? What does it take to run SQL over Hadoop?

Running SQL-on-Hadoop implies accessing data from “within” Hadoop using SQL as the interface. Accomplishing this demands a significant re-architecture of the storage and compute infrastructures. SQL-on-Hadoop also shifts Hadoop’s role from being a technology, viewed so far as complementary to databases into something that could compete with them. Its perhaps the single most significant feature that will help Hadoop find its way into more enterprises.  This session highlights some conceptual ideas of the different ways that SQL processors can be implemented atop Hadoop. It looks looks at examples of OSS and Research-ware products. Continue reading »

Harpreet-Singh[1]Harpreet Singh shares his experience in building an enterprise Big Data Platform For a 100TB Dataset with a medical sector use case. He talks of at how they went about managing the unstructured data (genomics, imaging) on Hbase/Hadoop and structured data (biochemistry, skin tests etc) on  NoSQL Mongo database, and the challenges faced along the way.

Apache Hadoop is a Java framework for large-scale distributed batch processing infrastructure which runs on commodity hardware. The biggest advantage is the ability to scale to hundreds or thousands of computers. Hadoop is designed to efficiently distribute and handle large amounts of work across a set of machines.

This talk will introduce Hadoop along with MapReduce and HDFS. It will discuss the possible scenarios where Hadoop fits as a robust solution and will include a case study from a project, where Hadoop is used for bulk inserts and large-scale data analytics.
