It certainly has been a tough week on the East Coast. In the Boston area, where I am located, we got grazed by Sandy – power outages, trees down, schools closed, and Halloween delayed. This though, pales in comparison to what our NY office had to endure. One of our co-founders for example is one of the first few to get his power back at his home on Long Island just yesterday. He considers himself lucky – one of the several pine trees that came down on his property was just a few degrees off from destroying his house (it ended up taking down the gutter instead). Needless to say, it’s going to be a long recovery for NY and NJ. If you are looking to help, see here.
Of course, NYC is known for its resiliency. The first post-Sandy event at Manhattan’s Javitis Conference Center, ad:tech New York, is going to occur as scheduled, from Nov 7-8, and we’ll be there. We hope you can join us if you are in the area.
For those who haven’t been, it’s the largest gathering of digital marketing technologies. It’s also a forum that enriches the exchange of ideas, best practices, emerging models and expert insights. Attendees get to meet face-to-face with hundreds of leading-edge businesses, technologists, and experts who cover everything from search to startups to social, mobile and much more.
While at the show, stop by to see us in the Innovation Alley to learn about the latest in Big Data analytics with TokuDB. You’ll hear why online advertising customers such as Intent Media have chosen MySQL with TokuDB over NoSQL solutions such as Pig/Hive and MapReduce to obtain performance at scale with massive data volumes.
