A new platform built on Hadoop 2.0 can process a billion events per second, according to an article on TechCrunch . DataTorrent RTS was released on Tuesday, and it promises to give businesses the ability to process data in real-time in a way that they haven't been able to before.
The strategic release of DataTorrent is poised to work in favor of businesses that may soon experience an explosion of data input from various sources, not just human-generated but device-generated as more developers turn towards the Internet of Things as an opportunity for new products.
Prior to a product like DataTorrent, companies would be looking back at what happened, rather than processing it in real time as it happens, and that’s a big change . . . After reviewing data, they could see what happened, but it was too late to take action. DataTorrent aims to give those customers the ability to see data as it’s generated, and react in real time to these events.
...currently data is “big,” but it’s mostly human generated. Over the next 3-5 years that will pale in comparison to the data coming in from these machine-generated sources. Companies can build applications on top of the DataTorrent platform to process whatever type of data is important to them. That could be finance, weather data, advertising bidding or any other business that could benefit from real-time processing.
