About the Author

Jan Kunigk has worked on enterprise Hadoop solutions since 2010. Before joining Cloudera in 2014, his tasks included building optimized systems architectures for Hadoop at IBM and implementing a Hadoop-as-a-service offering at a global IT hosting corporation. In his current role as a Solutions Architect he makes Hadoop projects at Cloudera's enterprise customers successful, covering a wide spectrum of architectural decisions to the implementation of big data applications across all industry sectors on a day-to-day basis. Ian Buss began his journey into distributed computing with parallel computational electromagnetics whilst studying for a PhD in photonics at the University of Bristol. After simulating LEDs on supercomputers, he made the move from big compute in academia to big data in the public sector, first encountering Hadoop in 2012. After having fun building, deploying, managing and using Hadoop clusters, Ian joined Cloudera as a Solutions Architect in 2014. His day job now involves integrating Hadoop into enterprises and making stuff work in the real world. Paul Wilkinson has been wrestling with big data in the public sector since before Hadoop existed and was very glad when it arrived in his life in 2009. He became a Cloudera consultant in 2012, advising customers on all things hadoop: application design, information architecture, cluster management and infrastructure planning the FullStack. After a torrent of professional services work across financial services, cybersecurity, adtech, gaming and government, he's seen it all warts and all. Or at least, he hopes he has. Lars George has been involved with Hadoop and HBase since 2007, and became a full HBase committer in 2009. He has spoken at many Hadoop User Group meetings, and conferences such as Hadoop World and Hadoop Summit, ApacheCon, FOSDEM, QCon etc. He also started the Munich OpenHUG meetings. Lars worked for Cloudera for over five years, as the EMEA Chief Architect, acting as a liaison between the Cloudera professional services team and customers as well as partners in and around Europe, building the next data driven solutions. In 2016 he started with his own Hadoop advisory firm, extending on what he has learned and seen in the field for more than 8 years. He is also the author or O'Reilly's HBase The Definitive Guide.
