Sqrrl Data, Inc. (Sqrrl) and ClearEdge IT Solutions (ClearEdge) are excited to announce that they will be jointly hosting the first-ever Accumulo Summit. The event will be held on June 12th of 2014 in Greenbelt, Maryland. The Accumulo Summit 2014 is the first edition of the annual event that will serve as the focal meeting point for the Apache Accumulo™ community. This event will be a one-day conference bringing together hundreds of key industry and government professionals for a day of interactive Accumulo discourse and educational sessions.
“We are very excited about the level of enthusiasm we have received from speakers, sponsors and attendees for the first-ever conference dedicated to the Accumulo community,” says Mark Terenzoni, CEO of Sqrrl. “This conference will bring together some of the world’s leading Big Data and Hadoop practitioners to discuss how Accumulo is powering a new wave of secure Big Data applications.”
Accumulo, originally developed at the National Security Agency, is a high performance NoSQL database with cell-level security controls. After being open sourced in late 2011, Accumulo became a top-level project at the Apache Foundation in the spring of 2012 and is currently being used throughout the Federal Government and by various private sector companies.
Organized by members of the Apache Accumulo community and co-hosted by Sqrrl and ClearEdge, the conference will consist of one general session and two breakout tracks to accommodate attendees of different levels of experience.
