In a world where mastery of big data leads to competitive advantage, adaptability and scalability are the new driving factors for analytical infrastructure. Founders of the Apache Accumulo project have recently launched sqrrl, a Boston based startup. sqrrl’s mission is to support and drive Accumulo and to provide a secure, scalable, and efficient discovery analytic layer on top of Accumulo, exposing the new design patterns that Accumulo brings. This talk will discuss the technology and techniques of Accumulo and exemplify them through an application development perspective.
