Perl for Big Data

Martin Holste will give a talk at YAPC::NA 2012 described as:

Hadoop is overrated.  Come see what modern Perl can do with map/reduce on terabytes of data with an extremely simple, maintainable architecture by orchestrating the inserting and querying of data on enormous scales.  This talk will deconstruct the Enterprise Log Search and Archive (ELSA) project which is fully written in asynchronous, object-oriented Perl and provides a framework for Big Data analytics in a modular, pluggable architecture with the flexibility and customization that only Perl can provide.

[From the YAPC::NA Blog.]


Is there anything that you can point me to, to see how you set things up? I'd love to see it in action.
