Y!'s platform for nimble universal table storage

http://research.yahoo.com/node/212

Nuggets :
- No plans to open source.
- The implemented basic relational operators do not allow for ad-hoc analysis and bulk processing. (use pig, hadoop instead)
- They have a SQL-like language but it’s very basic. (no support for joins, aggregation, etc.)
- It has active participation of yahoo infrastructure team.
