This is a triple header joint meetup.  Don Lee's SQL Server Group and 
Andy Schneider's new Big Data Group will be joining the Database Seminar 

It will be at 7:00 PM on Thursday March 27 in Talbert Hall  107 on the 
UB North Campus. Talbert Hall is between the Natural Sciences Complex 
and Capen Hall. If you enter the campus on Flint Rd, it is a little to 
the left of the Flint Loop. You will probably park in either the 
Fronczak or Hochstetter lot. No permit is required for parking in 
student lots at this time of day.

*Nate Byrnes will discuss what big data is, where it comes from, and 
some things that are be done with it as well as some of the how it is 
being done.*

Currently the lead data analytics consultant for Rochester's Leveraging 
Technology, Nate Byrnes has been working with and supporting 
applications with large volumes of data since 2005 when he was a data 
warehouse developer for ClientLogic (now Sitel). After that introduction 
to what he thought was a lot of Data, Nate joined Netezza, where he was 
given the chance to work on some much larger data problems. Tackling 
issues from multi-terabyte data warehouses, to large scale video 
computer vision, opened his eyes to the challenges and possibilities 
presented by "big data."

We've been settling for light refreshments and will do the same. 
*doolli* is our current sponsor.

About a dozen brave and hardy souls showed up on the very cold night 
February 27 for Databases: Distributed, Federated, Partitioned and 
Broken! <http://www.meetup.com/buffalolab/events/163903692/> We decided 
to substitute a review of an interesting project Wayne and Chris are 
working on, involving reliability in a multi server environment. The 
talk is rescheduled for April 24 . See
