Mark Madsen commented on SQL on Hadoop: Defining the New Generation of Analytic Databases
Good perspective in this talk, although I feel the comment “MPP DBs scale to tens of nodes” shows some ignorance of the MPP database market, given the multi-petabyte installs of MPP databases and their very large node counts.

Roy J.Swagger commented on An Introduction to the Berkeley Data Analytics Stack (BDAS) Featuring Spark, Spark Streaming, and Shark - Part 1
I am wondering since shark uses a in-memory model, then how to fit big data situation, like PB,EB? Thanks
