Google has just unveiled what may turn out to be one of the most promising products introduced this year. At the Google I/O developers conference the company introduced Google Cloud Dataflow, a cloud computing service. It was also demonstrated publicly for the first time. The new service is a successor to the MapReduce service. The company also introduced several other new services for developers.
What is Google Cloud Dataflow?
Greg DeMichillie, Director of Product Management, wrote on the Google Cloud Platform blog, “A decade ago, Google invented MapReduce to process massive datasets using distributed computing. Since then, more devices and information require more capable analytics pipelines — though they are difficult to create and maintain.”
