Google knows what it takes to build data-driven businesses. Over the years, Google has faced many technology scaling challenges and answered the call with innovations for big data, as well as big data center compute, big networking and big storage. Google inspired Hadoop and many other innovation in the market. Luckily, we can understand “what’s next” easily because Google sends us postcards from the future. If you want to know what’s coming next in big data, just ask yourself, “what would Google do?”
