MapReduce links

For whatever reason, I seem to be making the peripheral posts about MapReduce tonight before getting to the meat of the issues. So be it. There’s a rich set of links out there about MapReduce, and here are some of the best of them:

    Google’s paper wasn’t seminal. “MapReduce” is 30 years old. Did you read the paper? Nothing ground-breaking.

    The only thing Google did was write the code. However, in my opinion that’s high praise–talk is cheap. Google writes code; everybody else daydreams.

    Google’s work is seminal in that they woke the world up to the benefits of this old idea.

    There is a coding tutorial available at this link in the middle of the page:

    Key things to note about Greenplum’s MR implementation:
    – It’s very similar in form and expression to Google and Hadoop
    – Extensions for Joins and Pipelined task execution
    – Native parallel file access
    – Parallelism is full and transparent to the programmer

    In summary: we have implemented MapReduce within which you can write SQL, Perl, Python and many more languages. It is straightforward use MR programs written for Hadoop or Google and port them to Greenplum.
