Presentation: "The other Apache Technologies your big data solution needs"

Track: Apache / Time: Friday 14:30 - 15:20 / Location: Volmer Rooms

You've all heard about Hadoop, SOLR, Cassandra, CouchDB, HBase, NoSQL and friends, and now you're ready to start building your own solution on top of one of those! What you might not realise is that you may end up reinventing some bits of the wheel whilst building your system..

In this talk we'll take a whistle-stop tour through a number of the projects from the Apache Software Foundation that aren't ""big data"" projects, but which could prove very helpful to you in building your big data solution. We'll see that Apache is more than just the webserver, Hadoop and Lucene, and with any luck point you at projects that'll save you time!
