In the second part of our series on data we talk about the origins of Hadoop, the technology that formed the very foundation of what we know as “big data”. The emergence of Hadoop represents perhaps the single most important development in our lifetimes for storing, processing, and retrieving big data. And not only is this technology behind just about everything you touch on the web, it’s now even being used in the medical field to save lives.

Including interviews with Vas Natarajan of Accel Ventures and Amr Awadallah of Cloudera.

Recognized and supported by the world's leading companies.
