Big Data Storage and Data Virtualization

The major objective of this paper is to present Big Data Storage techniques and Data Virtualization. The Data virtualization servers have focused on making big data processing easy. They can hide the complex and technical interfaces of big data storage technologies, such as Hadoop and NoSQL, and they can present big data as if it is stored in traditional SQL systems. This allows us as developers to use our own existing skills and to deploy our traditional ETL, reporting, and analytical tools that all support SQL.

Big Data - Definition, Importance, Examples & Tools

Re: [rda-bigdata-ig][array_database] ADA:WG report available for public comment

Dear Sandro,

your contributions are much appreciated. Over the 1.5 years - where you also
participated in some meetings - additions were simple, just by updating the wiki
yourself. Now, after submission for checking, changes should concentrate on
fixing issues popping up. That said, I will still try to accommodate changes as
much as feasible, just send me a list of the changes. I will collect all during
the comment period and do a bulk update.

best regards,

Peter

2) contribute to the general sections too;
3) provide an application perspective, with special regard to the climate domain.
