This is Russell Jurney, your Big Data reporter on the ground here at Strata NYC/Hadoop World at the New York Hilton. Monday night’s main event was Big Data Camp. As in any unconference, the best action was in the hallway, meeting people you only know by reputation or from twitter. Highlights were:
- Microsoft’s demonstration of Excel -Power Pivot -Hortonworks Data Platform
- Druid: Real-Time Analytics at a Billion Rows Per Second by Eric Tschetter, Co-founder of Metamarkets
In light of today’s announcement – the Hadoop market just got MUCH bigger
In-RAM stores are an interesting new development as RAM becomes cheaper and cheaper, and can augment a Hadoop-centric workload.
