On Friday we had series of events and announcements around our new Aster-Hadoop Data Connector which utilizes key new SQL-MapReduce functions to provide ultra-fast, two-way data loading between HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System) and Aster Data’s MPP data warehouse.

In addition to the Big Data Summit we held in New York City (which we’ll detail in a separate post), Colin White presented on a Webcast with Aster on the various use-cases for Hadoop within data warehouse environments. Colin does a great job summarizing what Hadoop is, how it’s different from an RDBMS, the different types of users for each, and how they co-exist nicely in customer environments.

Below are the slides to view if you weren’t able to attend the event, which will also be available for on-demand viewing soon in our resource library.
