While Hadoop is great for batch processing and storage of very large data sets, it can take hours to produce results. […] To address this challenge, Terracotta recently announced the > BigMemory-Hadoop Connector, a game-changing solution that lets Hadoop jobs write data
directly into BigMemory, Terracotta’s in-memory data management platform.
This enables downstream applications to get instant access to Hadoop results
by reading from BigMemory. Hadoop jobs also execute faster, as they can now
write to memory instead of disk (HDFS). The result can be a significant
boost in competitive advantage and enterprise profitability.
Think about online applications. When the database gets slow you add a caching layer. It looks like a similar direction is very tempting for the majority of in-memory data grid-like solutions.
