DUCC is a new Linux cluster controller designed to scale out any Apache UIMA (tm) pipeline for high throughput collection processing jobs as well as for low latency real-time applications. DUCC stands for Distributed UIMA Cluster Computing. DUCC is running on cluster sizes from 1 to many 100s of machines.

This talk will cover the motivations that led to the creation of DUCC (the IBM Watson Jeopardy! Challenge), DUCC's benefits to developers and to computing cluster administrators, and demos of what you can do with it. It will explain why DUCC is well suited to run large memory Java analytics in multiple threads in ways that fully utilizes modern multi-core machines.

Attendees will leave with an appreciation of where DUCC "fits" in the UIMA set of subprojects, and an understanding of the value and applicability of using DUCC as part of their UIMA infrastructure deployments.
