Cloudant CTO Adam Kocoloski to Present at Erlang Factory 2012 on Developing a Scalable "Big Data" Framework in Erlang for Apache CouchDB(March 23, 2012)
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/23/12 --
Adam Kocoloski, CTO, Cloudant, Inc., creators of the Erlang and Apache CouchDB-powered Cloudant Data Layer managed service for developers of data-driven web applications.
Adam is an Apache CouchDB developer and one of the founders of Cloudant. He is the lead architect of Cloudant's distributed data hosting platform.
Erlang Writ Large - Erlang/OTP and Big Data
The Erlang/OTP programming model and framework is a boon to developers trying to build robust, scalable servers. Immutable data structures, lightweight processes and message passing in lieu of shared state all encourage healthy server designs with predictable operational characteristics.
Adam will describe the inner workings of the Cloudant Data Layer's horizontal scaling and data distribution framework, and show how various pieces of the stack -- from the storage subsystem up to global data replication -- mirror the essential elements of a typical Erlang application.
