Concurrency & Garbage Collection considerations as the JVM goes to Big Data

Concurrency is the currency of scale on multi-core & the new generation of collections and non-blocking hashmaps are well worth the time taking a deep dive into. We take a quick look at the next gen serialization techniques as well as implementation pitfalls around UUID. The achilles' heel for JVM remains Garbage Collection: a deep dive into the internals of the memory model, common GC algorithms and their tuning knobs is always a big draw. EC2 & cloud present us with a virtualized & unchartered territory for scaling the JVM.

We will leave some room for Q&A or fill it up with any asynchronous I/O that might queue up during the talk. A round of applause will be due to the various tools that are essentials for Java performance debugging.

About the speaker:

SriSatish Ambati is the chief tinkerer of Java and Enterprise stacks for the Cassandra Company, DataStax (formerly Riptano) & before that for 7 years at the JVM company, Azul Systems. Over the course of a decade or so, he has actively supported, profiled and scaled hundreds of in-production and in-development Java, enterprise and database stacks for performance. He uses these experiences to distil system trends and turbulences. SriSatish's talks have been well received at conferences & tech fairs including JavaOne, JBossWorld & ApacheCon. He sometimes leaves trail @srisatish.
