This week Ill be attending Networking Field Day 15 and amongst the list of presenting sponsors is PNDA. PNDA is another vendor that I am not too familiar with since I don’t
deal a whole lot with big data. Another unique feature of PNDA is that they are an open source Linux Foundation collaborative project. Let’s talk about what they do.
PNDA has a pretty detailed overview page. At a very high level PNDA is a scalable analytics platform that offers an innovative approach to collecting, processing and analyzing big data. PNDA combines several open
source technologies to create their solution. According to the about page, PNDA decouples the data sources from the data consumers and the makes the data available to any application for processing. My initial thoughts is that something like this makes
sense, if I understand it correctly. Take all the data sources, send them to one place, and then let different applications access the data as the need to. I think this is a better approach than to span data to multiple locations for different applications
What I’m looking for.
