Subject Re: THIS WEEK: PNW Hadoop / Apache Cloud Stack Users' Meeting, Wed Jun 24th, Seattle
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2009 21:19:47 GMT
Hey all,

Just writing a quick note of "thanks", we had another solid group of
people show up! As always, we learned quite a lot about interesting
use cases for Hadoop, Lucene, and the rest of the Apache 'Cloud
Stack'.

 I couldn't get it taped, but we talked about:

-Scaling Lucene with Katta and the Katta infrastructure
-the need for low-latency BI on distributed document stores
-Lots and lots of detail on Amazon Elastic MapReduce

We'll be doing it again next month --  July 29th.
