ABOUT THE SUMMIT Welcome to Apache Cassandra Summit Europe 2013. Join us and hundreds of your database peers, and take a deep dive into Apache Cassandra, the massively scalable NoSQL database that powers global businesses like Netflix, Adobe, Thomson Reuters and eBay.
Everything Cassandra does is designed for a real-time workload of high volume inserts and frequent small queries. Cassandra has Hadoop and Hive integration, but performing long running ad-hoc queries with these tools is difficult without impacting real-time performance or requires duplicate clusters. This talk will explain how I'm integrating Cassandra with Shark, a drop-in Hive replacement developed by Berkeley's AmpLab. It's designed to give fine grained control over all resource usage so you can safely run arbitrary ad-hoc queries on your existing cluster with controlled and predictable impact.
