Google BigQuery SQL-like API

Google has announced at GoogleIO 2010, but didn’t launch yet, a new API for ad-hoc analysis, reporting, data exploration of massively large datasets: ☞ BigQuery. What I find interesting is that, BigQuery is using ☞ an SQL flavor, instead of MapReduce or Hive or PIG.

It still strikes me that Google hasn’t figured out yet a way to expose access to their MapReduce implementation. Judging by the numbers in the industry, I’d say that by now Hadoop is probably handling the largest volumes of data.
