I presented about distributed systems at the University Politehnica of Bucharest. Here are the slides, with thanks to the inspiration sources all over the web (Mahout presentations, HBase and Hadoop presentations).
There’s a new blog post up on hstack.org – Hadoop and HBase Automated Deployment using Puppet, written by yours truly. It also announces the open-sourcing of the code that we use to deploy a fully distributed system to one or more clusters in a semi-automated manner (we need to push the button 🙂 )
So, enjoy reading here.
My colleague Andrei just posted a great article about HBase performance, complete with numbers and pictures over on http://hstack.org/. If you’re into the all NoSQL movement, you should definetly check it out (and I’m not just saying it because I know him 🙂 )
