Metamarkets CEO Michael Driscoll and Lead Architect Eric Tschetter to Present at the O'Reilly Strata Conference + Hadoop World

Join Michael Driscoll, CEO of Metamarkets and Eric Tschetter to Discuss Hadoop, Big Data and the Metamarkets Solution

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 16, 2012) - Metamarkets, the leader in big data analytics for web-scale companies, announced today that CEO Michael Driscoll and Lead Architect Eric Tschetter will host a session at the O'Reilly Strata Conference + Hadoop World in New York, NY on October 24, 2012. The session is titled "Beyond Hadoop: Fast Ad-Hoc Queries on Big Data."

Hadoop is considered THE technology for addressing Big Data. While it shines as a processing platform, it does not respond anywhere close to "human time." Driscoll and Tschetter will start with a high-level overview of the Metamarkets solution relative to other technologies, such as Hadoop and transactional systems, and outline Metamarkets' requirements to support interactive queries across billions of rows in seconds. Driscoll and Tschetter will then discuss how and why Metamarkets developed Druid, its distributed, in-memory OLAP data store after investigating various commercial and open source alternatives.
