A Changing Planet

Another sign that big data is a really big deal in the database management industry? I just noticed that Planet DB2 now calls itself Planet Big Data.

Along with the name change come a number of recent links to big data topics, including this and this.

I've previously written about big data (here and here), so I certainly understand the focus on this topic.

Still, I miss the original DB2 Planet, which aggregated postings from various DB2 blogs. Unless you count my recent informal list of favorite DB2 blogs, I know of no other DB2 blog aggregator. If you read DB2 Planet and miss the old site, you might want to send them your thoughts (see the Email Us link on the main page).
