Academic Training Lecture | Big Data Challenges in the Era of Data Deluge | 9 - 10 March

Big Data Challenges in the Era of Data Deluge, by Ilya Volvovski (Senior Software Architect, Cleversafe, USA).


Monday, 9 March 2015 from 11:00 to 12:00

Tuesday, 10 March 2015 from 11:00 to 12:00

at CERN ( 4-3-006 - TH Conference Room )

For better or for worse, the amount of data generated in the world grows exponentially. The year of 2012 was dubbed the year of 'Big Data' and 'Data Deluge'; in 2013, the petabyte scale was referenced matter­-of-­factly; and exabyte size is now in the vocabulary of storage providers and large organisations. Traditional copy-based technology doesn’t scale into this size territory: relational DBs give up after many billions of rows in tables; typical file systems are not designed to store trillions of objects; Disks fail; networks are not always available. Yet individuals, businesses and academic institutions demand 100% availability with no data loss. Is this the final dead end? These lectures will describe a storage system based on IDA (Information Dispersal Algorithm) and unlimited in scale, with a very high level of reliability, availability, and unbounded scalable indexing. And all this without any central facility anywhere in the system and thus no single point of failure or any scalability barriers.
