Acunu Analytics is a real-time, incremental analytics platform built on top of Apache Cassandra. It is designed to provide analytics on fast moving Big Data, in domains such as web and social media analytics, sensor networks and for other machine-generated data.

Inspired by Twitter's Rainbird, we provide a generic, flexible and easy to use interface, which can scale to tens of thousands of updates a seconds and terabytes of data. We can answer a wide variety of useful queries in milliseconds, rather than the minutes or hours needed by Hadoop.

  • Discuss the challenges of Big Data real-time analytics
  • Learn about specific use cases for real-time results
  • Get a better understanding of how real-time analytics fit into your NoSQL strategy
