Starship Enterprisey – Getting Columnar with Dan McWeeney

Cross posted: Enterprise Geeks

In the first episode of Season 3 of Starship Enterprisey, we have finally announced that Starship Enterprisey is now officially an Enterprise Geeks Production.

In lieu of Hasso Plattner’s keynote at SAP Sapphire 2009 on columnar storage, the Enterprise Geek’s own Dan Mcweeney gives us the breakdown of Columnar vs Traditional Storage. Watch also as Dan shares his thoughts in general on the keynote.

If you have questions, suggestions, or topic ideas for future episodes, give us a shout here.  Enjoy!

Running Time: 13 minutes

      caught this one on eGeeks site. Read up on Google BigTable concept. Interesting now i have a better feel (and probably bragging rights) to explain why zooming in and out of Google maps (esp images) is so quick and fluid but not so when you scroll around to a different location.
      From my limited knowledge I could conclude Google stores all the images from different level of a particular location in a tablet assuming users natural tendency to zoom in and out at the same location.

      I with I could hear it better. The reports from Sapphire about this Dan McWeeney explanation were universally positive. Can you tweak the audio up a bit?

      If I boost it anymore you pick up too much background noise and some annoying "tweet" sound that I don't remember while we were in the room. Ed just needs to learn to hold the mic higher 🙂 better would have been to have a wireless lapel mic for Dan but our eGeek and Starship Enterprisey budgets are kind of low 😉
