  [http://incubator.apache.org/pig/ Pig] is a platform for analyzing large data sets. Pig's
language, Pig Latin, is a simple query algebra that lets you express data transformations
such as merging data sets, filtering them, and applying functions to records or groups of
records. Users can create their own functions to do special-purpose processing. 
  
- Pig Latin queries execute in a distributed fashion on a cluster. Our current implementation
compiles Pig Latin programs into Map-Reduce jobs, and executes them using Hadoop cluster.

It's also possible to execute queries 
+ in a "local" mode (without Hadoop cluster), with performance limitations caused by running
all processing in a single local JVM.
