New page:
= Is Pig the right platform for your scenario? =

If you:
 * Need to analyze data that is small (''kilobytes''), tall (''megabytes''), 
grande (''gigabytes''), or venti (''terabytes'').

 * Want to be able to create, modify and reuse your analysis logic easily.

 * Process one data set at a time 
 * ... or need to combine multiple data sets. 

 * Do simple processing (e.g., count the number of images on the web)
 * ... or complex processing (e.g., count the number of images that contain 
faces).

then '''Pig is right for you'''.

On the other hand, if you:
 * Need to retrieve individual records, or small ranges of records, from a very 
large data set (e.g., lookup Joe Smith's customer profile).
 * Have real-time data serving requirements (e.g., assemble a web page for Joe 
in under 100ms).
 * Need to be able to do random writes to specific data records.
 * Don't like barnyard animals.

then '''Pig is not right for you'''.
