Google Unleashes More Big-Data Genius With a New Cloud Service | Enterprise | WIRED

Post-MapReduce big data

"On Tuesday morning, at its Google I/O developer conference in San Francisco, the tech giant introduced a cloud computing service it calls Google Cloud Dataflow. Based on two software systems that have helped Google drive its own online operation for years–Flume and MillWheel–the service is a way of more easily moving, processing, and analyzing massive amounts of digital information. As he unveiled the service, Google’s Urs H√∂lzle–the man who oversaw the creation of Google’s global network of data centers–said it’s designed to help companies deal with petabytes of data–a.k.a. millions of gigabytes.

“Cloud DataFlow is the result of over a decade of experience in data analytics,” he said. During the conference keynote, one Googler showed how the system could be used to analyze reactions to World Cup matches posted to Twitter."
