Here’s some interesting NoSQL stuff guys. It’s a presentation about how Twitter uses NoSQL for analytics by Kevin Weil (@kevinweil), Analytics Lead, Twitter.

About the presentation

Collecting data (Scribe)
Storing and Analyzing data (Hadoop)
Rapid Learning over Big Data (Pig)

.. and Cassandra, HBase, FlockDB.

For those who are not aware of the said technologies…

Scribe – Log collection framework over Thrift, built and open sourced by Facebook
Hadoop – A software framework that supports data-intensive distributed applications from Apache
Pig – A platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs.
Cassandra – An open source distributed database management system
HBase – An open source, non-relational, distributed database modeled after Google’s BigTable and is written in Java
FlockDB – An open source distributed, fault-tolerant graph database for managing data at webscale
