IBM Offers BigInsights, BigSheets And A Big Cloud
IBM started experimenting with Hadoop in its labs several years ago, but it took products and services into commercial release last year, before Oracle and Microsoft announced they, too, would embrace the platform. IBM introduced InfoSphere BigInsights software in May. The software package includes a distribution of Apache Hadoop, the Pig programming language for MapReduce programming, connectors to IBM's DB2 database, and IBM BigSheets, a browser-based, spreadsheet-metaphor interface for exploring data within Hadoop.

IBM followed up in October by making BigInsights and BigSheets available as a service through IBM's SmartCloud Enterprise infrastructure. Basic and enterprise versions of the service are available, and the big draw is learning about and experimenting with big-data processing and analysis without having to invest in supporting hardware or IT expertise. Customers can set up and move data into Hadoop clusters in less than 30 minutes, according to IBM, and data-processing rates start at 60 cents per cluster, per hour.
