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. 

When Stratio Met Spark: A True Love Story

Certified distribution

Stratio is delighted to announce that it is officially a Certified Spark Distribution. The certification is very important for us because we deeply believe that the certification program provides many benefits to the Spark community: It facilitates collaboration and integration, offers broad evolution and support for the rich Spark ecosystem, simplifies adoption of critical security updates and allows development of applications valid for any certified distribution – a key ingredient for a successful ecosystem.

Stratio 0.9.1 release

Stratio 0.9.1 release

We are proud to announce that Stratio 0.9.1 release is currently available. On May 2014 Stratio achieved the major milestone of releasing the first  pure Spark and enterprise ready big data platform. But this was just the begining, the first step in a long journey. Just a couple  of months later a new release is ready including a large amount of new features and improvements. Here are some highlights:

First Apache Spark meetup

Stratio kicked off its first Apache Spark meetups earlier this month. Our friends and members of other groups on meetup joined in when we announced the group in Madrid.
Only 2 weeks later we celebrated our first Spark meetup. The expectation was unusually high. We counted 101 members on the group, 50 RVSP’d and 8 members on the waiting list. This surprised us because Spark only recently became an Apache project and it is yet to be widely known in the mainstream enterprise in the US, never mind in Europe.
