Big Data with Apache Accumulo Workshop

Thursday, April 13th
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Student Union, Room 145A

Abstract:  Apache Accumulo is a distributed key-value data store.  Modeled after Google's BigTable, Accumulo allows high-volume storage and efficient retrieval of big data-scale tables consisting potentially of millions of columns by billions of rows.  Accumulo supports server-side iterators, cell-level security, and integration with Hadoop M/R, all of which will be introduced in this workshop.  Representative use cases where Accumulo can provide utility will also be presented.  In this hands-on workshop, attendees will learn the basics of working with Apache Accumulo.  Experience with Apache Hadoop M/R and Java development will be helpful but are not required.
