In this talk, Benjamin Hindman (one of the original creators of the Apache Mesos project) will discuss Apache Mesos and how it can be used to more easily build and run distributed systems.
From the abstract: Many interesting “reference datasets” now fit in a single commodity server’s RAM, with more on the way as main memory sizes continue to grow. The open source Sirius library allows developers access to this data in native datastructures while managing the distributed systems heavy lifting of replication and persistence. In this talk, … Read More
From the abstract: All distributed systems are constrained by their ability to move data between components. We will talk about the engineering discipline required to achieve low latency and high throughput. Examples will be given from low latency C++ and high throughput python components used in SIG’s trading and data analysis stack. SIG is a … Read More
Learn tactics and strategy for productionizing distributed systems and a little bit about what the future will hold.
Drawing inspiration from and parallels with some of the lessons learned from our collective migration towards functional programming languages and data-orientation, Chas provides part of one such discourse.
From the abstract: “Every system is a distributed system” has become a common catchphrase among distributed system theoreticians and distributed database vendors…and they’re right. What hasn’t become common are actionable discourse about what this concretely implies for real-world systems, and how it differs from the status quo. Drawing inspiration from and parallels with some of … Read More
