Evolution of Technologies to Tackle Big Data


Title:  Evolution of Technologies to Tackle Big Data


Date/Time:  Wednesday, November 16, 2011, 6:30 - 8:45 pm




The Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. CERN scientists can generate 40 terabytes of data every second during experiments.  Boeing jet engines can produce 10 terabytes of operational information for every 30 minutes they turn. A four- engine jumbo jet can create 640 terabytes of data on just one Atlantic crossing; multiply that by the more than 25,000 flights flown each day.  Twitter serves more than 200 million users who produce more than 90 million "tweets" per day, or 800 per second. Each of these posts is approximately 200 bytes in size. On an average day, this traffic equals more than 12 gigabytes and, throughout the Twitter ecosystem, the company produces a total of eight terabytes of data per day..

What are the challenges that companies face as they try to deal with such huge volumes of data?  What technologies are they using to capture, store, search, share, analyze and visualize this massive amount of data?  This talk will attempt to provide some answers to these questions.
