AMP Camp Three – Analytics and Machine Learning at Scale

From the webpage:

AMP Camp Three – Analytics and Machine Learning at Scale will be held in Berkeley California, August 29-30, 2013. AMP Camp 3 attendees and online viewers will learn to solve big data problems using components of the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS) and cutting edge machine learning algorithms.

Live streaming!

Sessions will cover (among other things): Mesos, Spark, Shark, Spark Streaming, BlinkDB, MLbase, Tachyon and GraphX.

Talk about a jolt before the weekend!

Tachyon by UC Berkeley AMP Lab.

From the webpage:

Tachyon is a fault tolerant distributed file system enabling reliable file sharing at memory-speed across cluster frameworks, such as Spark and MapReduce.It offers up to 300 times higher throughput than HDFS, by leveraging lineage information and using memory aggressively. Tachyon caches working set files in memory, and enables different jobs/queries and frameworks to access cached files at memory speed. Thus, Tachyon avoids going to disk to load datasets that is frequently read.

Since we aren’t quite to in-memory computing just yet, you may want to review Tachyon.

The numbers are very impressive.
