Come learn about an important new Big Data tool, Apache Accumulo, from the creators of the technology and founders of sqrrl. You must register here for a ticket (RSVP'ing to this meetup is not sufficient):
The National Security Agency (NSA) began building Accumulo in 2008 to solve some key business problems facing the agency. Stovepiped and overloaded databases lead to fractured analytics and make it difficult to take advantage of all of your data. Accumulo, with its cell-level security controls and limitless scalability, enables enterprises to bring all of their data together and conduct better real-time analytics. Accumulo is an open-source software project tightly integrated with Hadoop, and any organization can leverage it as a secure Big Data Analytic Platform.
