Big data is yesterday–fast data is now. FiloDB is a reactive columnar OLAP database that is built on Cassandra and Spark. Today’s guest is Evan Chan, creator of FiloDB.
In our discussion today, we talk about the use cases of an OLAP data store. Evan explains how to tackle the problem of video analytics–if you have ever found yourself asking how a company like YouTube or Netflix or Ooyala performs analytics on millions of users watching millions of videos, this episode is for you. By combining the database features of Cassandra with the data processing power of Spark, Evan created FiloDB to help solve this type of analytics problem. Evan will also be presenting at Strata + Hadoop World in San Jose. We’re partnering with O’Reilly to support this conference – if you want to go to Strata, you can save 20% off a ticket with our code PCSED.
