The 3rd edition of Big Data Spain in Nov 2014 was a resounding success.
Watch the video below and find out why our attendees, speakers, partners and friends turned Big Data Spain into one of the largest events in Europe about Hadoop, Spark, NoSQL and cloud technologies.

Trafodion SQL-on-HBase for transactional workloads

Hadoop is an open source framework designed to rapidly ingest, store, and analyze large data sets. Hadoop is well suited for batch processing where immediate interactive analytics are not required. But today, Hadoop does not support the operational and transactional workloads. These workloads consist of a constant flow of transactions requiring low-latency response times for read/write access.

Additionally, these workloads are characterized by:
• Data integrity with ACID-compliant protection
• High availability, concurrency and scalability
• Multi-structured data
• Rapidly evolving data requirements

On the other hand, traditional operational databases, which are designed to handle transactions, struggle to handle really large data sets. Trafodion is an open source project sponsored by HP, incubated at HP Labs and HP-IT, to develop an enterprise-class SQL-on-HBase solution targeting big data transactional or operational workloads. Trafodion is licensed under the Apache License. Trafodion extends Hadoop to provide guaranteed transactional integrity, enabling new kinds of big data applications to run on Hadoop. The project is named after the Welsh word for transactions.
