Hot food, cold beverages (3 great talks) and cool raffle prizes (see below)! The meetup will run from 6-8 p.m. at Bootup, 68 Willow Road · Menlo Park, CA. RSVP now to reserve your spot because space will be limited!
> Talk 1: "Searching large databases with a billion objects or more!" with George Williams [Director of Data Science and Chief Evangelist, Embedded AI at GSI Technology].
> Talk 2: "Low Latency SQL Caching Without Custom Code" with Doug Hood [Oracle TimesTen Scaleout evangelist]
> Talk 3: "Troubleshooting Apache Ignite (and best practices)" with Stan Lukyanov, [software engineer at GridGain Systems]
>> Talk 1 (George): What do face recognition, visual e-commerce, and drug discovery have in common? These days they involve searching large databases with a billion objects or more. Unlike traditional database search, exact match to a query is not the goal. Instead similarity search is employed to retrieve the closest items. One way to scale similarity search is to use specialized hardware and I’ll talk about GSI Technology’s custom chip that accelerates large-scale similarity search.
GSI Technology designs, develops and markets a broad range of high performance memory products for networking, military, medical, automotive and other applications.
>> Talk 2 (Doug): Learn how an In-Memory Database can be used as a read/write cache to dramatically increase the performance of SQL statements. See how this can be achieved using either SQL metadata or drag and drop. See how these techniques are being used by airlines, payment processors and telecom companies.
>> Talk 3 (Stan): Summary: Whether you are getting started with Apache Ignite or have already deployed, this session is for you. Stan will explain how to set up deployments to make them easier to monitor, manage and keep up and running properly. He'll also hare best practice examples on how to:
* Configure Ignite and GridGain for deployment, management and monitoring
* Leverage log files during troubleshooting
* Use monitoring interfaces and tools such as JMX, Visor and Web Console
* Identify and fix top errors for newly installed and existing deployments
