Pervasive Software’s Chief Integration Technologist Paul Dingman will be a presenter at Hadoop Summit 2011 on June 29, 2011, in Santa Clara, CA. Paul is participating in the Application and Research track and will present from 1:15 pm to 1:45 pm PDT. Paul's presentation is "Hadoop on a Personal Supercomputer."
He will discuss the potential advantages of running Hadoop on single many-core machines with large disk arrays, illustrating cases where Hadoop running on one, or a few, fat nodes can deliver faster results and be more cost effective than Hadoop running on a greater number of lower end machines. He will also discuss opportunities to exploit intra-server parallelism to improve task communication and coordination overhead.

Big News to Expect at the Hadoop Summit: We’ll Introduce Pervasive TurboRush™ for Hive
As more companies adopt Apache Hadoop software for big data preparation and analytics, many are using Apache Hive for its ability to run SQL-like queries and analyze large datasets stored in the Hadoop file system.
We saw the opportunity to provide a “turbocharger” to make Hive queries run more efficiently, without developers having to modify them or learn another tool. At the Hadoop Summit the Pervasive DataRush team will introduce Pervasive TurboRush for Hive. Queries run faster on less hardware, all without code changes. Stay tuned!
You’ll also hear news about the Pervasive DataRush, Community Edition for Hadoop – a version of Pervasive DataRush for developers doing prototyping in Hadoop and looking to get better performance in their Map/Reduce cluster jobs. If you’re prototyping a Hadoop job and you’re sensitive to scaling and containing costs, this edition is for you. We’ll offer users a managed community site with forum, as well as support.
And Don’t Forget: BigDataCamp the night before the Hadoop Summit
The evening before Hadoop Summit 2011 users of Hadoop and other big data-related technologies will exchange ideas in a fast-paced, peer-driven “unconference.” BigDataCamp will be a knowledge transfer and networking opportunity for data engineers, enterprise architects, developers, analysts, data miners and business intelligence professionals. Led by CloudCamp's Dave Nielsen, attendees will share their thoughts in open discussions with pre-defined and majority-vote topics, including best practices in application development and advanced analytics. Pervasive DataRush Chief Technologist Jim Falgout will present a brief lightning talk, as will Concurrent Founder and CTO Chris Wensel, Foursquare Engineer Ben Lee and others.
Supported by Pervasive DataRush, Aster Data, Concurrent and EMC, BigDataCamp will be on June 28, 2011, from 5:30 PM-10:00 PM (PT), at the Network Meeting Center at Techmart.
