"HPCC Systems runs on clusters of commodity hardware and is made
up of a number of components, centered around the company's
Enterprise Control Language, a 'declarative, data-centric
programming language optimized for large-scale data management and
query processing,' LexisNexis said.
"A component called Thor handles data ETL (extraction,
transformation and loading) chores, while a third system named
Roxie delivers 'highly scalable, high-performance online query
processing and data warehouse capabilities,' LexisNexis said."
