Words from this week’s sponsor, Aerospike:
Thumbtack Technology’s YCSB Benchmark shows Aerospike nearly 20x faster than Cassandra, Couchbase and Mongodb for consumer-facing applications that require extremely high throughput and low latency, and whose information can be represented using a Key-Value schema. Read it now!

On the 27th of February, Instaclustr, one of the first dedicated Apache Cassandra hosting platforms left beta. Running on Amazon EC2 infrastructure, Instaclustr dramatically reduces the deployment and management pains associated with running a Cassandra cluster.
Here’s what you’d get with Instaclustr:
Totally managed: Instaclustr reduces the headaches associated with deploying and running a highly available Cassandra cluster. Deploy Cassandra in minutes, knowing that backups, monitoring, maintenance and tuning are all taken care of.
Fast: Cassandra clusters managed by Instaclustr will provide consistently lower latency operations, with greater throughput per dollar than DynamoDB, MongoDB and other managed NoSQL offerings.
Highly Available: Instaclustr deploys Cassandra on Amazon infrastructure, leveraging geographically distinct availability zones and on-demand instances to ensure your cluster is always available.
Low Cost: Instaclustr has an incredibly low total cost of ownership when compared to other managed NoSQL offerings and includes email support and proactive monitoring.

On Monday, February 25, Greenplum, a Division of EMC introduced Pivotal HD: the world’s most powerful Hadoop distribution. Greenplum has spent the last two years building a new Hadoop platform that will leave the traditional database behind. Pivotal HD can store the massive amounts of information Hadoop was created to store, but it’s designed to ask questions of this data significantly faster than you can with the existing open source platform.
Greenplum is revamping Hadoop to operate more like a relational database, letting you rapidly ask questions of data using SQL, which has been a staple of the database world for decades. A team led by former Microsoft database designer Florian Waas has designed a new “query engine”, HAWQ, that can more quickly run SQL queries on data stored across a massive cluster of systems using the Hadoop File System. Compared to batch-oriented queries running against a Hadoop cluster, the combination of HDFS and HAWQ shows anywhere from 10x to 600x performance improvement. Here’s a link to a whitepaper about HAWQ, Pivotal HD’s parallel SQL engine for Hadoop (pdf).

Words from this week sponsor:
EMC believes that Hadoop has the potential to reach beyond Big Data to catalyze new levels of business productivity and transformation. As the foundation for change in business, Hadoop represents an unprecedented opportunity to improve how organizations can get the most value from large amounts of data. Businesses that rely on Hadoop as the core of their infrastructure can not only do analytics on top of vast amounts of data, but can also go beyond analytics and the foundation for that data layer to build applications that are meaningful, and that have a very tightly coupled relationship with the data. Consumer Internet companies have reaped the benefits of this approach, and EMC believes more traditional enterprises will adopt the same model as they evolve and transform their businesses.
Pivotal HD will be available at the end of the first quarter of this year as a software-only or appliance-based solution, backed by EMC’s global 24x7 support infrastructure. Go here for more info.
If you are reading this before Mon., Feb. 25th 10am PST/1pm EST/8pm GMT, EMC Greenplum has a live streaming event featuring Harper Reed, the former CTO of the Obama campaign. His team rocked data during the campaign, so check it out!
