Getting Started with Big SQL tech preview

Big SQL 3.0 brings a native SQL MPP engine to Hadoop.  This engine brings rich SQL support, federation, security, RBAC,  UDFs, stored procedures and much more.   How SQL rich is it?   Look at the Video replay below to learn about the TPC-H and TPC-DS SQL workloads and the amount of queries that were used.  Not only do you get richer SQL but it is faster.   Big SQL is a feature of IBM's Hadoop distribution (BigInsights).

Where can you learn more?   There are lots of resources to learn more about Big SQL 3.0.  Here is a short list of resources:
And finally try it yourself on the cloud via the Big SQL Tech Preview.   BTW, a getting started tutorial is included with the Big SQL tech preview under the resources tab and there are also additional links to many of the resources above.  

The BigInsights 3.0 QSE VM is also now available to try Big SQL.  You can also find an additional Big SQL hands on lab geared towards the VM on Hadoop Dev.
