    It looks like Microsoft is creating a ODBC connector for Hadoop. I haven't worked with map / reduce much, but I wasn't aware that you could ODBC-ify Hadoop. Interesting stuff.

    Ha! No, I think you have that backwards. They are going to PivotTable the reductions... I think. But, I like the enthusiasm!

    @JoshRoss: That would make more sense. Hadoop is quite inefficient on anything but extremely large amounts of data. If you've got TBs of data stored in Excel then I think you need to reconsider your life choices. Tongue Out
