(23-04-12) Full paper accepted at PVLDB vol.5/VLDB 2012: Only Aggressive Elephants are Fast Elephants.
We propose a new Hadoop MapReduce system HAIL (Hadoop Aggressive Indexing Library). At query HAIL outperforms Hadoop MapReduce by up to a factor 70; at upload time HAIL is only 60% slower, often even faster than Hadoop MapReduce. In both cases HAIL is by a large factor faster than Hadoop++. paper
