The 10 Coolest Big Data Tools Of 2022 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

Data is an increasingly valuable asset for businesses and a critical component of many digital transformation and business automation initiatives. Here’s a look at 10 cool tools in the big data management and analytics space that made their debut in the first half of the year.

Aerospike 6.0 and Aerospike SQL Powered by Starburst

The Aerospike NoSQL database is a distributed, in-memory data system that can process billions of transactions in real-time using massive parallelism and a hybrid memory model. The database, which is the core engine of the Aerospike Real-Time Data Platform, is targeted for multi-cloud, large-scale JSON and SQL use cases.

Aerospike Database 6.0, unveiled in April, provides native support for JSON document models at any scale, according to the company. The new release adds enhanced support for Java programming models, including JSONPath query support to store, search and better complex data sets and workloads.

With the new capabilities the database can support large-scale data models in instances across an enterprise and makes it possible to add time series, graph and additional data models in future releases.

Aerospike SQL Powered by Starburst can run massively parallel, complex SQL queries on petabyte-scale data stored in the Aerospike Real-Time Data Platform. The new solution integrates the Aerospike system with Starburst’s SQL-based MPP query engine. Partners and resellers can sell the two technologies as a single SKU.
