    Default Using Mtamarkets "Druid" as a data source in Pentaho

    Hi everyone.

    i am new to Pentaho, but so far it looks quite good.

    One issue I have with it however, is that it doesn't have an "in memory" database offering.

    I have been looking around at other Open Source In Memory offerings, and the "Druid" solution from Metamarkets looks to be very promising.

    My issue is that Druid does not include a front end reporting suite (I.e. dashboarding, analytics etc).

    My thinking therefore, was whether it is possible to use the excellent offering of the Pentaho tool set with the Druid In Memory backend.

    Has anyone done this? If so, is it possible to share your experience? The Druid documentation is quit lacking.

    thanks in advance.

    Here is a slide deck from Pentaho Chief Architect Will Gorman's blog talking about the various solutions to Big Data Analytics:

    Slides 11-13 lay out the alternatives as well as Pentaho's choice of investment in Mondrian over other technologies such as Druid.
