Subject How's this for our BOSS workshop overview?
Date Mon, 13 Jul 2015 21:51:30 GMT

We will be showing our stuff at the BOSS Workshop in Hawaii on the last 
day of VLDB week there.
Here's what I've written up - comments?  (Anyone else wanting to be a 
co-presenter?  I will tweak
the list accordingly.)  We'll soon figure out how to use our time - but 
it's basically a half-day type
tutorial on the system, hands on - we'll help attendees all install and 
use AsterixDB.  Should be a
lot of fun!


PS - I need to send this to Tilmann Rabi, the organizer, by this evening 
- so this is a quick call for last-minute input and then I'll send it 
off to him.  Thx!


AsterixDB is a BDMS (Big Data Management System) with a rich feature set 
that sets it apart from other Big Data platforms such as Big Data 
Analytics Systems and NoSQL stores. Its features make it well-suited to 
applications including web data warehousing, social data storage and 
analysis, and other use cases related to Big Data. AsterixDB has a 
flexible NoSQL style data model; a declarative query language that 
supports a wide range of queries; a scalable runtime system; 
partitioned, LSM-based data storage and indexing (including B+ tree, R 
tree, and text indexes); support for external as well as native data; a 
rich set of built-in types, including spatial, temporal, and textual 
types; support for fuzzy, spatial, and temporal queries; a built-in 
notion of data feeds for ingestion of data; and, last but not least, 
transaction support akin to that of a NoSQL store. Co-developed by 
researchers at UC Irvine and UC Riverside, Apache AsterixDB is now 
undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) and has 
contributors and early adopters from multiple institutions both within 
and beyond the UC System.
