One of the biggest announcements at Teradata Partners 2015 is that Aster will run on Hadoop. Many of our customers have already invested in a Hadoop data lake and want to do more than just store data. Storing data is helpful but not all that interesting. What if you could easily do advanced analytics without having to move data out of the lake? What if you had the power of Aster’s multi-genre analytics running on Hadoop? This is exactly what Aster Analytics on Hadoop is all about.
This announcement is a very exciting prospect for some but may strike fear into others. In my blog, I will entertain some of the interesting prospects of bringing together these technologies. I also hope to allay some fears as well.
