A nice, high level introduction to Big Data related tools/platforms for the developers or academic researchers in data science. Will be a good starting point to get up to speed with the available options.

I was kinda skeptical when I first had my hands on these 60 pages and, after getting through them (that did not take so much), I’m still kinda puzzled. I did not get confused by the content, no. I guess if you decide to read this book, you must know what to expect from it, else you will end up pretty much disgusted with both the money and time wasted.

Let’s make it clear: this book doesn’t teach you anything. After thirty minutes or so, when you reach the back cover, you will not have learned any

Too many technologies and too little talked about!

Nothing in detail, but gives the happenings and context of the Big Data Buzz. Just a good "Perspective Builder".

this book presumably has a very imminent/short best-before-date, but is nonetheless worth a read.

This book is a summary of the most popular modern tools for dealing with big datasets. There are no detail descriptions of the presented tools but it is a good intro book.

Bom para ter uma visão geral de ferramentas de Big Data. Fraco nos conceitos, mas serve como ponto de partida para se aprofundar na área.

It was a book with good information for big data storing systems. It was very short.

Just an overview of big data tasks and tools, nothing less, nothing more.

A good overview of Big Data tools

Very brief introduction, the links might take as long to investigate.
Good introduction, although will become outdated very fast (needlebase no longer exists, for example).

A quick read for those who want to be introduced to the big data world.

I think the lack of examples and illustrations make the understanding of the concepts too abstract.

This is an informative book that provides a high level view on all Big Data tools and technologies.
