Cost Effective BigData processing using Amazon Elastic Map Reduce (EMR)
– Sujee Maniyam
BigData is no longer just the problem for the big guys (Facebook / Yahoo / Google). Even startups are struggling to deal with huge amount of data. The problems are real, the solutions are challenging and the budget is tight. Amazon Elastic Map Reduce offers a big data crunching solution, that is inline with ‘pay for use’ model of Amazon EC2. Sujee will talk about his experience building a scalable, cost-effective, data-warehouse system on top of Amazon ‘cloud’ infrastructure (EC2, S3, EMR) for a startup. He will go through the evaluation process and final implementation and happy to swap some tips and tricks he learned along the way.

Why is MapReduce still a niche technology? An evaluation of the current state of MapReduce.
– Chris Neumann
It’s now midway through 2011. IBM, EMC and Cloudera all have their own distributions of Hadoop. Aster Data’s SQL/MR has been available for almost three years, and most other Big Data RDBMS vendors have since jumped on the MapReduce bandwagon. Yet despite increasing momentum, growing media hype, and all-around potential, MapReduce is still a niche technology, used by specialized teams of programmers in a small (albeit growing) number of companies. Find out why.
