MySpace and Big Data

As you can imagine MySpace has to deal with huge amounts of data too, but they are doing it differently:

In its search for new data warehousing technology, the company evaluated technology from vendors including Teradata and Netezza. However, says Watters, “we didn’t think any of it could scale according to our needs.”

Instead it turned to Aster Data, whose “massively parallel” database technology is based on Google’s MapReduce distributed analytics engine[1]
