Big Data Application Platform

Nati Shalom throws one in for Big Data Application Platforms:

Big Data Application platforms are unique in the sense that they need to be able handle massive amounts of data and therefore need to come with built-in support for things like Map/Reduce, Integration with external NoSQL databases, parallel processing, and data distribution services and on top of that, they should make the use of those new patterns simple from a development perspective.Below is a more concrete list of the specific characteristics and features that define what Big Data Application Platform ought to be. I’ve tried to point to the specific Java EE equivalent API and how it would need be extended to support Big Data application.
