Abstract content

Column store databases are a newer entry to the big data realm. They handle structured data like DNS queries exceptionally well and work best with minimal data normalization. Queries execute significantly faster than RDBMS technology (~ 100 times faster). This talk will outline the technology at a high level and walk through examples of data loading, compression, and reporting using a freely available Column Store DB as well as Nominum’s experiences and findings analyzing large amounts of DNS data.

No normalization, fast data loading, no indexing, fast queries and SQL... what's not to like?
