Independent research firm Knowledge Integrity Inc. examine two high performance computing technologies that are transitioning into the mainstream: high performance massively parallel analytical database management systems (ADBMS) and distributed parallel programming paradigms, such as MapReduce, (Hadoop, Pig, and HDFS, etc.). By providing an overview of both concepts and looking at how the two approaches can be used together, they conclude that combining a high performance batch programming and execution model with an high performance analytical database provides significant business benefits for a number of different types of applications.
