The second article in a series covering Big Data and SQL interaction is available now:
“Big data” is a term that has been used regularly now for almost a decade, and it — along with technologies like NoSQL — are seen as the replacements for the long-successful RDBMS solutions that use SQL. Today, DB2®, Oracle, Microsoft® SQL Server MySQL, and PostgreSQL dominate the SQL space and still make up a considerable proportion of the overall market. Here in Part 2, we will concentrate on how to use HBase and Hive for exchanging data with your SQL data stores.

Let\’s start by looking at how the two systems differ and how we can take advantage of that in our big data requirements.
