Apache Pig - A Platform for Analyzing Large Data Sets
Entry ID: ApachePig


Summary
Abstract: Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs. The salient property of Pig programs is that their structure is amenable to substantial parallelization, which in turns enables them to handle very large data sets.
