Prasanna Rajaperumal and Vinoth Chandar will explore a specific problem of ingesting petabytes of data in Uber and why they ended up building an analytical datastore from scratch using Spark. Prasanna will discuss design choices and implementation approaches in building Hoodie to provide near-real-time data ingestion and querying using Spark and HDFS.
