DataServices World 2008 West: Yahoo! Director of Software Architecture on Data Processing in the Cloud

Breakout session to be given by Parand Darugar in The Fairmont Hotel, San Jose, CA (November 20, 2008)

Hadoop, an open source implementation of map/reduce, has garnered tremendous momentum in large scale data processing, marting, and on occasion warehousing. In an upcoming breakout session at DataServices World 2008 West, being held in November conjunction with the 14th International SOA World Conference & Expo in San Jose, California, Parand Darugar - Director of Software Architecture, Yahoo! - will be describing the programming model, capabilities, common patterns, and best-practices for Hadoop deployment and usage.

Darugar's session will also examine the current state and industry adoption of Hadoop and cloud-based data processing, the ecology of value-add technologies and services in the grid computing and data processing world, and models for using grid-based data processing alongside traditional technologies and techniques.

At Yahoo! as Director of Software Architecture, Darugar is responsible for the adoption of scaling and grid technologies across the advertising business unit. In a prior role he managed the advertising platform groups, Yahoo! wide centers of expertise providing Java, Database, and other platform technologies across the company. He also served as a part of the core architecture team for Panama, a rebuild of Yahoo's major targeted advertising system.


DataServices World, being held November 20 in San Jose, California, at the 14th International SOA World Conference & Expo, has a lineup of speakers headlined by Dr Mike Carey (pictured), one of the 50 Most Influential Computer Scientists in the world. The lineup also includes experts from Adobe, Yahoo!, IBM, Oracle, m2mi, and DataDirect Technologies.

"DataServices World is about the confluence of databases, data warehousing, business intelligence, enterprise computing and Internet computing," says Ken North, DataServicesWorld 2008 West Conference Chair.

Carey, who leads the lineup, is Bren Professor of Information and Computer Science at UC Irvine and the 2005 recipient of the ACM IGMOD Edgar F. Codd Innovations Award - the computing equivalent of an Academy Award!

Carey, a National Academy of Engineering member, is acknowledged as one of the 50 most influential computer scientists in the world by a UCLA-maintained Web site that tracks research citations. He is best known for his work on advanced database systems and database system performance.

His most influential academic projects have been the EXODUS and SHORE database systems, which continue to influence designers and researchers in the field. In industry, he contributed to IBM’s DB2 Universal Database system and played a leadership role for BEA Systems’ data integration and management solutions. These systems are widely used in the banking, insurance and healthcare industries, and they also have many government applications.

Speaking of the much-acclaimed DataServices World event, which kicked off in March of this year in New York City, Ken North said of Data Services as a technology approach: "Its focus is architectures and technologies for accessing data from heterogenous data sources and providing that data to consumers such as components, services and applications."

North continued:

"Many organizations have a variety of persistent data stores, including SQL databases, geo-coded data files, spreadsheets, content management systems and XML. Services, applications, and mashups can consume and integrate data from disparate data sources. In an n-tier enterprise architecture and a service-oriented architecture, the logic for providing data from databases and other data sources resides in data access layers and data services layer."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
