+Apache Pig
+Pig is a dataflow programming environment for processing very large files. 
+language is called Pig Latin. A Pig Latin program consists of a directed
+acyclic graph where each node represents an operation that transforms data.
+Operations are of two flavors: (1) relational-algebra style operations such as
+join, filter, project; (2) functional-programming style operators such as map,
+Pig compiles these dataflow programs into (sequences of) map-reduce jobs and
+executes them using Hadoop. It is also possible to execute Pig Latin programs
+in a "local" mode (without Hadoop cluster), in which case all processing takes
+place in a single local JVM.
