Presentation: "Beyond the Data Grid - Designing for Actor Model, Social Networks, Scalable Search"

Time: Thursday 16:30 - 17:30

Location: Shelley Room

Abstract: In this session, Shay Bannon, Director of Technology at GigaSpaces, will discuss what's next for systems based on data grid technology. Data grids are most commonly used for pure data caching, but data grid solutions have made substantial progress and are capable of delivering much more. Shay will explore major advancements in this area and will provide design principles for implementing an Erlang-style Actor model, a scalable search engine (using Lucene), and complex data retrieval for social networks (e.g. finding friends of friends on Facebook).
