Every 32 terabyte file was written to disk in about 20 minutes, at a sustained rate of 27 gigabytes per second. By applying an enhanced version of FastQuery, an information query language for large and complex data, they indexed this massive dataset in about 10 minutes, and then queried it in three seconds for interesting features to visualize.
Remarkable would say too little about these numbers.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
