R20: SQL-on-Hadoop Engines Explained

Hadoop is recognized as an ideal platform for storing and managing big data. Unfortunately, Hadoop APIs are complex and may require a high level of technical expertise.

To leverage the full capabilities Hadoop has to offer, you'll need a programming interface that retains Hadoop's performance and scalability, is easy to maintain, known to non-technical users, and can be used by a variety of existing analytical and BI tools.

The solution? SQL-on-Hadoop.
