Databricks Crunches 100 Terabytes of Data in a Record 23 Minutes

There’s a new record holder in the world of “big data.”

On Friday, Databricks—a startup spun out of the University California, Berkeley—announced that it has sorted 100 terabytes of data in a record 23 minutes using a number-crunching tool called Spark, eclipsing the previous record held by Yahoo and the popular big-data tool Hadoop.
