Building Big Data HealthCare Solutions in the cloud

I have just finished giving a presentation with Datastax on building HealthCare Big Data Solutions in the cloud.

Here are the slides from the session:

Travis Price also rounded out the session with a high level tutorial on Cassandra and a really cool demonstration of the robustness of the Datastax platform using a stack of Raspberry Pi computers configured running a version of Debian Linux and Datastax Enterprise configured as two 5-Node datacenters in a cluster.

The Raspberry Pis were configured with 512MB RAM, an SD Card as a drive and a USB-connected WiFi.It is a great way to show how Datastax works around and recovers hardware failures.
