Michael Stonebreaker: Big Data is (at least) Three Different Problems

Michael Stonebreaker is known for many advances in the world of databases: He created Ingres, Postgres (which was later used as the basis for PostgreSQL), and even more recently SciDB, VoltDB, and Tamr. He was, last week, awarded the Turing Award by the ACM, for his contributions for the world of databases. In this talk, Stonebreaker describes the term “big data,” and what it really means for people implementing and using databases.
