Powerset is hosting the first user group meeting for HBase (http://hadoop.apache.org/hbase/), a robust, scalable, distributed, column-oriented store capable of hosting billions of row of sparse, structured data. HBase is open source and part of the Hadoop project.
Definitely come if you're a current user of HBase; or if your company has plans for a huge data store and you're evaluating solutions.
We're on the 3rd floor in Ste. 330. You'll have to sign in with the guard downstairs, but we'll let 'em know you're coming if you sign up here.
