Big Data application framework gets update, SQL interface

Thor Olavsrud | Nov. 20, 2013
Open source big data application platform specialist Concurrent has released a new version of the Cascading application framework and simultaneously released Cascading Lingual 1.0, an ANSI SQL interface for Hadoop.

"Cascading is an important component to the big data application development ecosystem, and Lingual is another step forward in making it significantly easier to build big data apps," says Steve McPherson, group manager, Amazon Elastic MapReduce (EMR) at Amazon Web Services (AWS).

"Now, Amazon Elastic MapReduce customers can leverage Lingual to integrate disparate data stores on Amazon Web Services with services such as Amazon S3 and Amazon Redshift, and they can process the data and store it in Amazon EMR through one standard ANSI SQL statement," McPherson says. "This makes it easier for customers to query data with their favorite BI tool."
