Getting Serious about MySQL and Hadoop at Continuent

2 April 9:15AM - 9:45AM

Duration: 
30 minutes keynote
Lean, mean MySQL and hulking Hadoop clusters may seem like an odd couple, but tying them together is now priority #1 for many MySQL users.  This talk explores the data management trends spurring integration, how the MySQL community is stepping up, and where the integration may go in the future.  We outline how work at Continuent fits into this picture and how we are contributing to the MySQL community response to Hadoop
