re: Google BigQuery Adds Data Streaming
I'm not clear on how/why a cloud-based service like Amazon Elastic Map Reduce "requires significant investments in infrastructure and management." Isn't the whole idea of a cloud service NOT requiring infrastructure. If Google is talking about analytical tools to run on top of Hadoop, there are options on AWS including Karmasphere, just as Google has BI/analytics partners on BigQuery. Is there really zero infrastructure or management behind Google's offering?
