Trafodion SQL-on-HBase for transactional workloads
Additionally, these workloads are characterized by:
• Data integrity with ACID-compliant protection
• High availability, concurrency and scalability
• Multi-structured data
• Rapidly evolving data requirements
On the other hand, traditional operational databases, which are designed to handle transactions, struggle to handle really large data sets. Trafodion is an open source project sponsored by HP, incubated at HP Labs and HP-IT, to develop an enterprise-class SQL-on-HBase solution targeting big data transactional or operational workloads. Trafodion is licensed under the Apache License. Trafodion extends Hadoop to provide guaranteed transactional integrity, enabling new kinds of big data applications to run on Hadoop. The project is named after the Welsh word for transactions.
