Aster Data and ShareThis to Co-Present at MicroStrategy World 2010

“Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing in the Cloud” to Showcase Largest Active Amazon Web Services-based Data Warehousing Implementation

What: While many enterprises have contemplated the idea of migrating their data warehousing and advanced data analytics to the cloud, few have actually taken the plunge. ShareThis, the world’s largest sharing network, is one company that has done so. And they’ve done it by using Aster Data’s solution for big data that enables complex analytics on terabytes of data in the cloud.

With the largest active analytics data warehouse on Amazon Web Services’ EC2 cloud (12 terabytes and growing), ShareThis has implemented cutting-edge technologies including SQL-MapReduce, in combination with Aster Data and MicroStrategy, to deliver data mining and advanced analytics such as social graph analysis.

In this session, ShareThis will share some of their own best practices, detail how they use Aster Data and MicroStrategy in the cloud, and demonstrate how to balance the dynamics of a cloud environment without compromising quality or performance.

Where: MicroStrategy World 2010, Las Vegas
(Aster Data is exhibiting throughout the event at Booth #502)

When: Wednesday, January 27th at 5:30PM PST.
