  1. 1. Given Enough MonkeysSome Thoughts on RandomnessJesse Anderson | CLOUDERA, INSTRUCTOR
  2. 2. Infinite Monkey Theorem2
  3. 3. Million Monkeys Algorithm Randomly generate a 9 character group TOBEORNOT Does it exist in Shakespeare? To be, or not to be- that is the question3
  4. 4. Exponential Growth (aka Big Data) Odds of finding a group Contiguous Combinations of characters is 1 in 26 Characters raised to the power of the number of 8 208,827,064,576 contiguous characters 9 5,429,503,678,976 10 141,167,095,653,3764
  5. 5. Data Bias?5
  6. 6. Hadoop Scalability Percent of Linear Scalability 100 80 Percent 60 RDBMS Hadoop 40 20 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 Nodes RDBMS = Relational Database6
  7. 7. Business Value of Scalability Scaling does not require Adding more computers massive re-engineering to cluster gets a and complete rewrites of predictable increase in code computational power and storage SAVE SAVE7
  8. 8. Going Viral (and taking over the world) Covered internationally 26,000 unique in BBC, Wall Street visits from 119 Journal, Wired and countries in Slashdot one day8
