QCon is a practitioner-driven conference designed for technical team leads, architects, and project managers who influence software innovation in their teams.

Presentation: "Finding the Needle in a Big Data Haystack"

Track: Solutions Track Thursday 2 / Time: Thursday 14:30 - 15:20 / Location: Abbey Room

In this talk we share with you how search functionality natively integrated with the Hadoop ecosystem helps address one of the industry's biggest challenges. We introduce the emerging concept of a data hub, and describe some use cases helped by search available in the same platform as analytic workloads. This presentation includes a walk through of the technical integration we contributed to standard open source frameworks and components, such as Apache Solr and Apache Hadoop, to enable free text drill down capabilities over large or multi-type data sets.
This is a technical solution talk, aiming to inspire architects and business insightful engineers.

Eva Andreasson, Pioneer of Deterministic Garbage Collection

Eva Andreasson

Biography: Eva Andreasson

Eva Andreasson has been working with Java virtual machine technologies, SOA, Cloud, and other enterprise middleware solutions for the past 10 years. Joined the startup Appeal Virtual Machines in 2001, as a developer of the JRockit JVM, which later was acquired by BEA Systems. Eva has been awarded two patents on Garbage Collection heuristics and algorithms. She also pioneered Deterministic Garbage Collection which later became productized through JRockit Real Time. Eva has worked closely with Sun and Intel on many technical partnerships, as well as various integration projects of JRockit Product Group, WebLogic, and Coherence (post the Oracle acquisition in 2008). After two years as the product manager for Zing, the worlds most pauseless JVM, at Azul Systems, she joined Cloudera in 2012 to help drive the future of distributed data processing through Cloudera's Distribution of Hadoop. Recently launched Cloudera Search - a new real-time search workload natively integrated with the Hadoop stack - and drove the efforts that lead to 10x user uptake of Hue - the UI of the Hadoop ecosystem.
