Once defined by the “three Vs” of volume, velocity, and variety, the term “big data” has overflowed the small buckets we gave it and taken on a life of its own. Today, big data refers not only to the ongoing information explosion, but also an entire ecosystem of new technologies, as well as a unique way of thinking about data itself. Here’s a quick recap of the short history of big data. The World Wide Web was just starting to Read more…

FPGA System Smokes Spark on Streaming Analytics

Mar 10, 2015 |

Technologists with decades of experience building field-programmable gate array (FPGA) systems for the federal government today unveiled a commercial FPGA offering it claims holds 100x performance advantage over Apache Spark for specific streaming analytic jobs.

Actian Claims ‘Permanent Performance Advantage’ with SQL-on-Hadoop Tool

Mar 2, 2015 |

The SQL-on-Hadoop sweepstakes are by no means over. What’s been dubbed the “gateway drug” for Hadoop is just starting to gain traction.
