Lately there has been lots of noise about “Real Time” Big Data. Lots of
companies that associate themselves with this term are generally in
analytical space and to them it really means “low-latency” for analytical
processing of data which is usually stored in some warehouse, like Hadoop
Distributed File System (HDFS). To achieve this they usually create in-memory
