My thanks to EMC Greenplum for sponsoring the last 2 weeks to promote Pivotal HD an enterprise-hardened revamped version of Hadoop that can run SQL queries using a new parallel query engine named HAWQ.
Since the announcement two weeks ago, Pivotal HD got a lot of coverage in the media. I would encourage you to take a look at the HAWQ whitepaper (PDF) or watch the webcast featuring Harper Reed. the former CTO for Obama 2012 campaign.
If your area of interests includes Hadoop (and it does since you are reading this blog), learning about Pivotal HD will prove useful. And it will help me show that myNoSQL’s readers are the smartest, most educated and informed data people.
