  • What is the talk about?

    Michael: Big Data solutions enable distributed processing and fault-tolerant storage environment for huge amounts of data. Cloud computing changes economy of IT by enabling flexible on-demand consumption from large pools of shared resouces. These two trends (or buzzwords?) promise to be driving forces of changes in IT industry. But there are inherent contradictions in their architecture principles and some of their aspects really do not play well together.
