A new Partner, Xeridia, joins us on our journey through Big Data

Stratio has a new Partner, Xeridia: specializing in technology consulting, software development, and systems integration. Since its founding in 2003 it has stood for a high level of technology and expertise, with Big Data technology as one of its pillars. Given the importance Big Data is having and the development of related technologies, Xeridia chose to conduct a thorough study of current ecosystems worldwide. The result of this research was the adoption of Spark and Stratio’s existing technology as the most solid, stable and simple platform.

We were at the Cassandra Summit, from 10 to 12 September in San Francisco

The Cassandra Summit 2014 took place on September 10-12 in San Francisco with more than 2000 attendants. The summit was split into 3 days, with Training sessions the first and third day and Conference sessions with 6 tracks on the second one. The first thing we noticed after passing through the registration desk was how amazing the organization was. Smooth registration process, clear track and room directions, clear demarcation of themes: sponsors, tracks, etc. In summary, one of the best organizations in an appropriate venue with huge social network activity.
