Pick the right tools for cloud and big data

Sponsored by SearchCloudApplications

The cloud and big data are infiltrating company practices, and in some cases, they're doing it together. The intersection of the two brings many challenges and opportunities for companies that choose to process and store big data in the cloud. Once companies decide to host big data in the cloud, they'll want to assess their circumstances and decide what works best for them.

This handbook looks at different platforms and tools developers can use to harness big data in the cloud. SearchCloudApplications news writer Joel Shore talks to experts about big data as a service. Consultant Tom Nolle discusses why databases are an integral part of the big data in the cloud decision-making process. In another piece, Nolle details when Hadoop is a good option for development teams working with cloud and big data -- and when it's not the right fit.
