Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets on Hadoop. It provides a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs.
Apache Pig is a platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with infrastructure for evaluating these programs. The salient property of Pig programs is that their structure is amenable to substantial parallelization, which in turns enables them to handle very large data sets. Pig's infrastructure layer consists of a compiler that produces sequences of Map-Reduce programs. Pig's language layer consists of a textual language called Pig Latin, which has the following key properties: * Ease of programming. It is trivial to achieve parallel execution of simple, "embarrassingly parallel" data...
