Apache CouchdDB is a schema-free document database with unique characteristics that make it an excellent fit for a new wave of applications. It is a rapidly maturing product and one of the leaders of the NoSQL movement. I will briefly highlight the defining characteristics of CouchDB (REST API, JSON key/value store, MapReduce views, replication/conflict-resolution), focusing on solving problems for both application development and application deployment. I will then highlight lessons learned from running CouchDB at scale in production systems with an eye towards future development of the CouchDB project.

Massive growth in the size of business datasets leads many companies to Hadoop, an emerging architecture for parallel data processing. However, the migration path can be challenging, in part because MapReduce analyses use programming languages like Java and Python rather than SQL. Apache Pig is a high-level framework built on top of Hadoop that offers a powerful yet vastly simplified way to analyze data in Hadoop. It allows businesses to leverage the power of Hadoop in a simple language readily learnable by anyone that understands SQL. In this presentation, I will introduce Pig and show how it's been used at Twitter to solve numerous analytics challenges that became intractable with our former MySQL-based architecture.

Sporting a simple API and a command syntax which closely resembles HTTP, Redis is the Swiss army knife of storage engines. In this presentation I'll give a short introduction to Redis, and discuss ways Redis can be used today in your application's infrastructure.
Justin will introduce Riak, a decentralized data storage system. Riak has a convenient HTTP/JSON interface and map/reduce programming atop a networking model that is focused on write-availability and ease of operations. The talk will go through some difficult real-world situations that have occurred on applications using Riak, and how Riak helped make those situations manageable.
