Teradata acquires assets of Hadapt, Revelytix for big data

The deals give Teradata SQL querying and metadata management for Hadoop

Teradata has bought the assets of Revelytix and Hadapt in a bid to grow out its capabilities for the Hadoop big-data processing framework.

Revelytix developed Loom, a metadata management system compatible with a number of Hadoop distributions, including those from Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, Pivotal, IBM and Apache, according to its website. Loom is geared at helping data scientists prepare information in Hadoop for analysis more quickly.

Meanwhile, Hadapt is known for its software that integrates the SQL programming language with Hadoop. SQL is a common skill set among database administrators, who may not be familiar with Hadoop.

Last week, Teradata rival Oracle announced Big Data SQL, software that makes it possible to run a single SQL query against Oracle's relational database as well as Hadoop and various NoSQL information stores.

There are a number of other SQL on Hadoop implementations in the market as well, such as Cloudera's Impala and Pivotal's HAWQ.

Teradata will add Hadapt and Revelytix's employees and intellectual property to its Teradata Labs research and development arm, according to a statement released Tuesday. Terms of the deals were not disclosed.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
