Couchbase Meetup: Learn how to get sub-millisecond response times with Couchbase

September 17, 2014 @ 6:45 PM - 9:00 PM


The meetup will have two segments:

1)  Connecting Couchbase to Hadoop: Couchdoop – where Calin (Big Data Engineer at Avira) and Radu Pastia (Team Leader Big Data Operations) will talk about how their need for a high-performance connector between Hadoop and CDH led them to create Couchdoop and engineer it to optimize throughput.

Calin has been working as a Big Data Engineer for Avira since 2013 for two years. His passion for big data started in 2012, while attending an internship at the National University of Singapore. That is when he had his first contact with the Hadoop ecosystem. He holds a M.Sc. in Computer Science and is currently working on a Ph.D.

Radu had been working at Avira for almost 2 years. In the first few months he became a Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop. He has been responsible of setting up a Hadoop cluster for Avira and is now in charge of a skilled team who manages and operates the setup.

2)  Achieving sub-millisecond response time with Couchbase – during which Alex – our Product Manager – will share our experience with Couchbase and how we managed to achieve performance on our Full Metal Cloud.

Alex has also tested other NoSQL solutions such as Impala and Elasticsearch and tried to zero in on what setup provides the best price/performance for each application.
