Big SQL is a hybrid SQL on Hadoop engine delivering advanced data query for the enterprise. Use a single database connection or query for disparate sources such as HDFS, RDMS, NoSQL databases, object stores and WebHDFS. Benefit from low latency, high performance, security, SQL compatibility, federation capabilities and the ability to do ad-hoc and complex queries. Compared to using a generic Hadoop solution such as Cloudera, IBM and Hortonworks clients deploying Analytics workflows can improve the three-year ROI despite higher software costs. Get started with Db2 Big SQL Sandbox, which comes with sample data, tutorial and exercises.
