Presentation: "Grid Gain vs. Hadoop. Why Elephants can't fly"

Track: Solution Track: Big Data, NoSQL / Time: Wednesday 10:30 - 11:30 / Location: Rutherford Room

The topic of this presentation is about demonstrating how GridGain software allows to build a real time big data processing application in record time and how GridGain's approach is different to the one employed by the Hadoop framework that is based on offline batch-oriented processing.

Most of the presentation will concentrate on the live ""from scratch"" coding of the application that takes an ubiquities Hadoop example of calculating word frequencies in the large body of text and implementing it using GridGain to work in 100% real time context instead.

The live coding part of the presentation will be done using Scala programming language that is natively supported by GridGain. The initial 10 minutes of the presentation will be devoted to explaining the big data concepts and high level explanation about GridGain and Hadoop approaches to solving it.
