A Closer Look: Talend’s Big Data Sandbox

You can lead someone to the big data lake, but you can’t make them take the plunge.

You can give them a helpful push, however. That’s just what open source data integration (DI) specialist Talend says it’s trying to do with its new Big Data Sandbox, which it positions as a “virtual data integration environment” for big data use cases.

  1. Sounds like a great solution… anyone have experience with it?

    “Getting started with big data is still not easy for people. They are clearly getting value from it once they get into it, but getting into it is perceived as a problem. You need to know what you’re doing, you need to download a Hadoop distribution, you need to configure your environment and dependencies. What we are doing is making it possible for you to download a preconfigured [virtual machine] that will run on the common VM platforms. You will literally be able to download, install, and get this [Big Data Sandbox] up and running in less than 10 minutes.”
