Yarn – Generalizing Hadoop

Casey Stella
Principal Architect

October 16th @ 3:45 p.m. 228 MSB


Hadoop's next generation architecture has been in development for over 2 years now and it's a significant departure from Hadoop as a MapReduce-only distributed system. This talk will cover the re-architecture and how this opens up Hadoop from a one-trick system to a more general purpose distributed computing system. I'll touch on industry experience and, in particular, enterprise adoption of Hadoop in general.

Casey Stella is a Principal Architect at Hortonworks, a software company specializing on developing and advancing Hadoop and the Hadoop ecosystem of open source products. Previously, he was a Architect and Senior Software Engineer at Explorys, a medical informatics startup in town, a research geophysicist in the oil industry and a software engineer at Oracle.
