The Role of NoSQL in a Hadoop World

The Role of NoSQL in a Hadoop World

This session kicks off the Couchbase Connect Big Data track by answering some fundamental questions about the relationship between NoSQL and Hadoop. Both of these address the “big data” challenge but they target different parts of it. We’ll get concrete about where it makes sense to deploy NoSQL versus where it makes sense to deploy Hadoop. More importantly, we’ll discuss how NoSQL and Hadoop compliment each other and why they’re stronger together.

Gateway to Sky’s online video platform

Gateway to Sky’s online video platform

Sky’s OTT (Over the Top) streaming platform supports both live, on demand and download delivery of all of Sky’s premium content (Sports – Premiership football, Ryder Cup; TV shows – Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead; and movies) to 5 countries, supporting 80+ devices with 200 channels across the EU. Couchbase has enabled the authentication platform to scale out to meet the unique demands that this service requires.

Taking advantage of the built-in developer tools

Taking advantage of the built-in developer tools

Couchbase offers various developer tools that ship with each version of Couchbase Server. These tools allow developers to quickly set up a Couchbase cluster, load custom data sets, and construct N1QL queries for their applications. This session covers how couchbase-cli, cbimport, Query Workbench, and cbq can be used to help build a cluster, analyze your data, and quickly build your application.

Application clustering with Couchbase – Cisco

NoSQL is all about doing more, with less. This session will provide a deep dive into techniques for building an application clustering framework, backed by Couchbase. It explores how to roll your own functionality for discovery, load distribution, leader election, and more with Couchbase and simple application libraries.

Pies, charts, and more – NoSQL data visualization made easy with Cloud9 Charts

Pies, charts, and more – NoSQL data visualization made easy with Cloud9 Charts

NoSQL data is an integral part of today’s data fabric, and so are the BI/Analytics and reports on the operational data. New generation of technologies is making it a breeze to analyze and visualize NoSQL data. This session focuses on two such solutions: SlamData and Cloud9 Charts. Each session will highlight unique capabilities, and demonstrate how seamlessly powerful analytics can be achieved on Couchbase data.

 

Cloud9 Charts is an analytics platform for modern data architectures. A new analytics paradigm built for polyglot persistence architectures, Cloud9 Charts provides native analytics support for all major NoSQL databases, SQL databases, REST APIs, files, and other sources, to query, join, visualize, analyze, and predict data across heterogenous data sources. The talk will draw a contrast between traditional BI tools vs. a native NoSQL analytics solution, and shows a live demonstration of Couchbase using N1QL and Cloud9 Charts to build analysis on a real-world use case.

SlamData is a relatively new open source project that provides a unified, SQL-based interface atop MongoDB, Couchbase, MarkLogic, and Hadoop, which supports dynamic schema, data-in-schema, highly-nested data, and other scenarios that are a nightmare for other technologies. In this presentation, Damon talks about what problems the project solves and how you can use it to slice, dice, and aggregate any kind of data from a growing list of places.

Next Generation Storage Engine: ForestDB

Next Generation Storage Engine: ForestDB

B+-tree has been used as one of the main index structures in database fields for more than four decades. However, with the unprecedented amount of data being generated by modern, global-scale web, mobile, and IoT applications, typical B+-tree implementations are beginning to show scalability and performance issues. Various key-value storage engines with variants of B+-tree such as log-structured merge tree (LSM-tree), have been proposed to address these limitations. At Couchbase, we have been working on a new key-value storage engine, ForestDB, that has a main index structure based on Hierarchical B+- Tree (based Trie or HB+-Trie). and provides high scalability and performance. In this presentation, we introduce ForestDB and discuss why ForestDB is a good fit for modern big data applications.

Managing a Healthy Couchbase Server Deployment

Managing a Healthy Couchbase Server Deployment

“…An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure…” Using customer use cases we’ll review how to identify a healthy cluster and spot issues before they become problems for your application. The talk will cover Couchbase monitoring and explain how to interpret key statistics to identify common problems.

Introduction to Couchbase Server

Introduction to Couchbase Server

Are you new to the world of NoSQL? In this session we’ll take a look at why enterprises are adopting Couchbase, learn about the architecture of Couchbase and the considerations you need to think about when evaluating NoSQL. We’ll also take a look at the common use cases of Couchbase and take a quick look into document modeling. We’ll also walk through the installation of Couchbase on various platforms, setup and configuration parameters, how to monitor the admin console, and how to scale Couchbase.
