Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Accumulo, another BigTable clone, has shown up on Apache Incubator as a proposal
Date Tue, 06 Sep 2011 16:31:45 GMT
Hbase offers co-processors which should be able to do this.

And median *can* be accumulated in a small amount of memory.  It is a little
trickier than mean, but still doable.
