Transactions were long thought of as something out of scope for Hadoop, but that is changing due to it’s unique ecosystem. Now, as Hadoop has come to be the de facto standard in the Big Data space, there’s no reason why online transaction processing can’t run on the program.


At this year’s Strata + Hadoop World conference, our focus is on how transactions make the elephant fly and enable Hadoop to power real-time applications like OLTP or incremental updates for OLAP.

With solutions like Splice Machine’s RDBMS and the introduction of transactions on Hive and other Hadoop tools, the trend toward transactional Hadoop will only continue to grow Hadoop’s footprint in the enterprise. More and more types of workloads will be supported on top of Hadoop, and because companies will never have to throw data away, it will have a fundamental impact on how companies think about data, and how they will use data in the future.
