1. Eduardo Arino de la Rubia: MySQL to Vertica with Tungsten Replicator

In this very (very) short talk, I will discuss how you can, for free, stream your MySQL data to a Vertica Community Edition cluster, and do near real-time analytics on up to 1TB of data.

2. Lior Abraham: Building Modern Analytics for Trillions of Data Points

Abstract: There are many systems designed to address large volumes of data, but analytics, or ad-hoc queries, are often left in the dust. Query times on the order of hours or days. Data consumers are required to write code or complex SQL to answer even the most basic questions. At Facebook we built real-time systems that reduced to complex queries answered by hundreds of servers across terabytes of data in seconds or less. This talk covers how we applied the same principles to data, with one use case in-mind: analytics. How do we achieve scale at trillions of rows, maintain interactive speeds, keep broad flexibility and expressibility, and above all, make data accessible. Further, if we can achieve this, what is the impact on data science and data consumers.

Bio: Mr. Lior Abraham is a Co-Founder of Interana, Inc. Mr. Abraham was instrumental in scaling Facebook’s infrastructure from a few million users to over a billion, as well as bringing its most technically challenging products to market. This included building many of the back-end systems that powered Facebook, like the News Feed, and the real time comment stream for the first Obama Inauguration. He also built Facebook’s most popular internal tools for data analysis. He previously worked for Veritas/Symantec. He received his B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley.
