Hunk™ for Hadoop and NoSQL Data Stores

Explore, Analyze and Visualize Data Faster Than You Thought Possible

Whether you're using Hadoop or NoSQL data stores, getting value and insights out of your data is difficult. Traditional analytics tools aren't designed for the diversity and size of big data sets. And your data's becoming too big to move to separate in-memory analytics stores. In short, gaining meaningful insight can often take months and require specialized skills.

Hunk goes beyond typical data analysis methods and gives you the power to explore, analyze and visualize data, all from one integrated platform that you can use in minutes, not months. With Hunk you can detect patterns and find anomalies across terabytes or petabytes of raw data in Hadoop and NoSQL data stores without specialized skills, fixed schemas or months of development.

Big data doesn't have to be a science project. Whether this is your first Hadoop or NoSQL cluster, or your organization runs production clusters with thousands of nodes, Hunk delivers dramatic improvements in the speed and simplicity of getting insights from big data. To find out more, visit the Hunk tutorial.

Easy to Get Started
Download Hunk for free for a 60-day trial to connect to any size cluster. In less than an hour you'll be up and running to explore, analyze and visualize data.

For more on how to configure Hunk, see the Hunk Tutorial, Hunk Release Notes, and Splunk developer blog Hunk: Raw data to analytics in < 60 minutes. Visit Splunk>Dev to learn how streaming resource libraries connect Hunk to NoSQL or other data stores.

Integrated Analytics Platform
Hunk brings Splunk software's industry-proven big data analytics stack to your data in Hadoop, NoSQL and other data stores. Analyze data, create dashboards and share reports from one integrated platform. Simply point Hunk at your Hadoop cluster or NoSQL streaming resource library and start exploring data and gaining value immediately. Interactively query raw data by pausing and refining searches. Accelerate reporting response times by transparently caching search results. Quickly create and share charts, graphs and dashboards.

Splunk Virtual Index™ Technology
The Splunk Virtual Index decouples the data storage tier from the data access and analytics tiers, so that Hunk can transparently route requests to different data stores. Hunk uses this foundational patent-pending technology to enable seamless interactive exploration, analysis and visualization for data stored in Hadoop. You can create multiple virtual indexes that extend across one or more Hadoop and NoSQL clusters. Virtual indexes contain pointers to the data, such as assigning all files in a directory as an index, so you can prune partitions for faster search performance.
Powerful Developer Environment for Building Big Data Apps
Developers can integrate data and functionality from Hunk into enterprise big data applications using the Splunk web framework, documented REST API, Eclipse plug-in and software development kits (SDKs). Developing big data apps on Hadoop and NoSQL data stores is now as easy as building any modern web application. The web framework means that developers can use the tools and languages they know--such as XML, JavaScript and Django--to build big data apps with custom dashboards, a flexible UI and custom data visualizations. SDKs for Java, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, C# and PHP enable rapid integration between Hunk and other applications and systems to maximize the value of your data in Hadoop and NoSQL data stores.

Critical Netiquette Rules For Job Seekers - a Must Read!

Currently, I am working on a new Netiquette IQ book for job-seekers, recruiters and hiring people. There is much for many with these segments to improve upon. There are a variety of approaches to take for the job-seeker. Those listed here are the basics and really should always be followed. There will be some unique advanced techniques published in this blog soon for how to proceed when initial emails go unanswered, when recruiters do not reply after the first contact and how to follow up with offers in a proper Netiquette context.

Begin with 1-2 polite introductory sentences and begin every employment email with a few nice words. Quickly explain the purpose of the email - this is critical. The employer needs to know the purpose quickly.

Identify the position/define the attachment - Some hiring people have many positions. Never assume they know which one you are applying for.

Include follow-up with a date.  Do this proactively. It is critical the hiring person sees an enthusiasm for the position.

Tone - This is a critical component in all job correspondences. Keep the same upbeat, even tone even if you are being ignored or delayed.

Positive/Negative Keywords - Select vocabulary carefully. Refer to my book for great selections of power words.

Welcome questions and follow-up - Make sure the decision maker is comfortable in calling or emailing you.  

Advanced content - Be careful of overstating or complicating the email message with a resume attachment. The purpose of the email is to make sure the resume is read. Let it (the resume) contain the detail.

Attachments - Many put unrelated names on their attachment. It is very important to have your name on the attachments. Do not have an attachment with a date more than a few months old. You can also customize it with the company's name.

Signatures - Make your signature so it has multiple ways to contact you. Ignore home phone numbers and work emails, if at all possible. Do not include any personal social accounts. Keep the signature in the same font and size.

Happy and successful hunting!
