Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) October 16, 2014
Sqrrl Data, Inc. (Sqrrl) and ClearEdge IT Solutions, LLC (ClearEdge) are excited to announce that they will be jointly hosting the 2nd annual Accumulo Summit. The event will be held on April 28-29 of 2015 in College Park, Maryland. The Accumulo Summit 2015 is the second edition of the annual event that will serve as the focal meeting point for the Apache Accumulo community. The first annual event was held in June of 2014 and was highly successful, having a sold-out audience of over 300 attendees.
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.
Last year’s event consisted of one general session and two breakout tracks to accommodate attendees of different levels of experience. The sessions were rich with technical content about current Accumulo projects and provided information about real world applications of Accumulo. A major highlight of last year’s event was the participation of General Keith Alexander (Retired), Former Director of the NSA, who gave an inspiring keynote presentation to close out the event.
This year’s event is being extended to a two-day conference to allow more time for the community to come together to share experiences, best practices and new ideas for employing Accumulo technology. Prospective attendees, speakers, and sponsors are urged to sign up to the Accumulo Summit website to stay abreast of updates on registration.
