Big Data Meets the Big Cloud: How To Monitor Thousands of Servers

A session at Strata 2012

Thursday 1st March, 2012

10:40am to 11:20am (PST)

Attendees of this session will learn, among other things, how to handle component failures in a complex distributed system. The cloud monitoring team uses geographic redundancy and isolation along with an innovative build process to create a system where failures can be quickly detected and addressed by the team.

They can also expect to learn how to understand and cope with the relational/non-relational impedance. There are data modeling anti-patterns that are easy to fall prey to when coming from a relational background, and the right approaches are often not intuitive.

Finally, attendees will hear on how to make open source work. Many open source projects suffer from poor documentation and support, or companies that offer support at exorbitant prices. Understanding how open source communities work and employing engineers familiar with open source software makes it easier to leverage these projects.
