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
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
