Making Hadoop A Relational Database

Hadoop

Alex Woodie reports on an offering by a company named Splice Machine:

“Everybody is struggling to figure out how to expose what’s been put on the data lake to the business,” Splice Machine founder and CEO Monte Zweben told Datanami at the recent Strata Data Conference. “Our opinion is that you can take infrastructure that people understand, like relational database management systems, and run them directly on the data lake.”

That’s essentially the message that Splice has been pushing since the peak of the Hadoop frenzy in the 2013-2015 timeframe, and it’s the same message that it’s pushing today. The big difference, according to Zweben, is the maturity level. Splice Machine’s open source technology that essentially turns Hadoop into a distributed ACID-compliant relational database is now ready for primetime. Wells Fargo is arguably its biggest paying customer and production use case, but it has dozens more across financial services, healthcare and other industries.

Feasel’s Law strikes again.
