Apache Hadoop India Summit 2011

Hadoop has become the de-facto standard for ‘big data’ firms such as EBay, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and even Yahoo itself.  Hadoop is a software framework to build large scale, shared storage and computing infrastructures.  The share nothing and highly scalable Hadoop clusters offers the most wanted reliability and ability to perform analytics across humongous amount of data available with them.

Yahoo’s announcement of discontinuing its version of Hadoop distribution a couple of days ago and endorsing the Apache Hadoop makes this event even more significant.  Adding to the hype is integration, database and BI tool vendors endorsing Hadoop which has resulted in significant traction for Hadoop in the market place.

Yahoo is hosting the Apache Hadoop India Summit 2011 in Bangalore on 16th Feb 2011.  Informatica is sponsoring the event.

Whether you are a Hadoop developer or enthusiast, do make sure that you don’t miss this event.  Participation is by registration only and the space is limited.  Get yourself registered !!
