The future of big data is very, very fast
With In-memory solutions such as Spark and NoSQL databases, systems will optimize themselves so quickly, human intervention may become superfluous
There are only two certainties in big data today: It won’t look like yesterday’s data infrastructure, and it’ll be very, very fast.
This latter trend is evident in the rise of Apache Spark and real-time analytics engines, but it’s also clear from the parallel rise of real-time transactional databases (NoSQL). The former is all about lightning-fast data processing, while the latter takes care of equally fast data storage and updates.
