There’s another SQL-on-Hadoop project out there, Apache Tajo

I apologize if I’m late to the game on this, but someone just tweeted me about Apache Tajo, a potentially interesting new SQL query engine for Hadoop. I’m not sure how much traction it can possibly gain given the glut of other options out there (take a look at this now extremely outdated roundup from February), but I guess more options are better for users, to a point. SK Telecom, a Korean carrier, is already a big fan. Also, some of Tajo’s contributors’ employers are kind of interesting.
