The 10 Coolest Big Data Tools Of 2021 (So Far)

Rick Whiting

Managing ever-growing volumes of data continues to be a challenge for business and organizations. Here are 10 cool big data management tools and platforms that have caught our attention.

CockroachDB 21.1

New York-based Cockroach Labs develops CockroachDB, a cloud-native, distributed SQL database that’s designed to handle workloads with huge volumes of transactional data.

Cockroach launched CockroachDB 21.1 in May, making it simpler to tie data to specific locations anywhere in the world using a single database—a significant challenge as more countries and regions are demanding that data remain within their borders.

The new database release provides a unique architecture and built-in ability to manage the geo-location of data anywhere in the world using a few SQL statements—no schema changes or manual sharding—providing users with near-instantaneous access to data while ensuring local regulatory compliance.

The release minimizes transactional latency by placing data physically close to end users, eliminates outages by using redundancies that survive regional or cloud failures, and supports local data privacy requirements.
