Drill to Detail Ep.2. ‘Future of SQL on Hadoop’, With Special Guest Dan McClary

Mark Rittman

In the second episode of Drill to Detail, I’m joined by special guest Dan McClary, ex-Oracle Big Data SQL product manager and now working at Google on storage and big data projects. Dan and I discuss the state of the SQL-on-Hadoop market and where he’s seeing the innovation; how the mega-vendors are contributing to, extending and competing with the Hadoop ecosystem; and what he’s seeing coming out of the likes of Google, Yahoo and other Hadoop innovators that may well make its way into the next Apache Hadoop project.
