Recent Big Data News

ElasticSearch has raised $10M in funding. Elasticsearch is an open-source RESTful enterprise search engine built on Lucene which has quite a few nice features:
  • Distribution and high availability: Indexes are in shards, and each shard can be replicated.
  • Multi-tenancy, basically support for more than one index with different configuration
  • Their update API seems to have several levels of consistency.
  • They support all the features that are now standard such as facets, different weighting of various parts of documents, different mappers, etc.
  • And its API is very simple indeed.

Recollect is a new startup that enables archiving, downloading, and searching of your pictures and activities (tweets and check-ins for now). Their UI has an interesting timeline look.
