Cassandra and the Titan Graph Database

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This presentation introduces Titan, Faunus, and scalable graph computing in general. We present a case study of how Pearson builds an education social network on top of Titan, Faunus, and Cassandra to support learning in the 21st century. Titan is an open source distributed graph database build on top of Cassandra that can power real-time applications with thousands of concurrent users over graphs with billions of edges. Faunus is an open source global graph processing engine build on top of Hadoop and compatible with Cassandra that can analyze graphs, compute graph statistics, and execute global traversals. Titan and Faunus are components of the Aurelius Graph Cluster which enables scalable graph computation and powers applications in social networking, recommendation engines, advertisement optimization, knowledge representation, health care, education, and security.
