What's Manta? It's Joyent's latest service offering that combines a distributed object storage service with a massively parallel compute engine, right on the object server. The upshot is extremely low latency access to your objects, and with a familiar Unix pipeline as the interface. That means you can process terabytes of logs, video, images, or text without fuss.
Kartlytics: Mario Kart 64 analytics is just one type of job you can do with Manta. We'll have a quick walkthrough of Manta's operation and then follow-up with a series of demos.
