Hi,

I would like to know if you have a systematic approch to analyze the
data. 2 Terabyte of data is not easy to handle. How would you describe
your first steps to analyze the data? Which tools are you using? Are
you using a cloud service to handle the big data?

Looking forward to your replies

Thanks,
Cosmin

I can't answer directly since all our software scales to this data size pretty well.  We use Hadoop and Lucene.

You might consider operating on the data in a streaming fashion -- first sampling to train up a classifier then passing over the data.  Another approach is to consider a "realtime" architecture that only looks at a fixed sliding window over the data.

You might also consider segmenting the data, say to only look at English items or at News providers.

Ian

I think I have to upgrade my software to work with this data size.
Thanks Ian
