Since announcing the GA couple of weeks ago, I’ve been noticing quite a few data related posts on the Google Compute Engine blog:
- Mon., 9th: DataStax Enterprise feels right at home in Google Compute Engine
- Tue., 10th: DataTorrent offers massive-scale, real-time stream analytics on Google Compute Engine
- Thu., 12th: Qubole helps you run Hadoop on Google Compute Engine
If you look at these, you’ll notice a theme: covering data from every angle; Cassandra/DSE from DataStax for OLTP, DataTorrent for stream processing, Qubole for Hadoop, MapR for their Hadoop-like solution. I can see this continuing for a while and making Google Compute Engine a strong competitor for Amazon Web Services.
One question remains though: will they be able to come up with a good integration strategy for all these 3rd party tools?
