2nd Munich OpenHUG
Christoph Rupp started with a introduction to his embeddable HamsterDB, a nice and light alternative for BerkeleyDB. Beside a comprehensive feature set, he impressed with strong quality rules that are applied to each release. A embedded fast DB is certainly a different world than the massive scaling we do with Hadoop & Co, but why not imagine the HBase Shards using a really fast embedded piece of C-Code?
Afterwards we had some good discussions in different directions, spanning from Hadoop* up to all kinds of cloud challenges.
This was our second meeting and I still assume there are more data-fighters out there in the munich area. Spread the word!
Looking forward to he next Open Hadoop Users Group Meeting, probably mid-May 2010.
