Meeting Presentations

Chad Hardin, Senior Scientist, Koverse

Presentation:  Indexing and Querying Schema Free Data with Mandatory and Discretionary Access Control
Abstract:  While Accumulo is incredibly scalable and stable, it (and similar Big Data databases) are limited to generic key and value storage functionality. To make it easier for users to ingest and query schema-free data, several key-value indices must be created and maintained not only with data, but access control information. Chad discussed how to take a KV database like Accumulo and create a higher abstract concept of Collections: schema-free records with logarithmic searching ability and embedded access control.
