Cortex – Research Note – Positioning CortexDB in Hadoop Data Architectures – Extending the Data Warehouse and beyond.
English – October 2014 - Enterprise data architectures are challenged by Big Data. Indeed, Hadoop is now becoming a new standard in data management. It is designed to store and analyze both structured and unstructured data ("data in rest") as well as data streams ("data in motion"). Furthermore, NoSQL databases are becoming an increasingly important part of this new database landscape. Hadoop complemented by NoSQL technologies offers the potential to handle Big Data analytics and to develop new innovative apps that were not possible by using relational technology. As a consequence, the traditional data warehouse is considerably extended. CortexDB is one of these NoSQL database technologies. In this research note, we have a closer look at CortexDB, and discuss what makes CortexDB stand out: It is a temporal, multimodal NoSQL database technology that differs from all known databases via its index structure and its content-orientation. Thus, CortexDB is the solution for managing large quantities of complex poly-structured data in Hadoop data architectures.
