[erlang-questions] Erlang for Big Data

I was at the Big Data Innovation Summit last week, learning about approaches to Big Data.  I’m sure there are many more knowledgeable people than I on this list, but if I understand things correctly, Big Data is distinguished from just plain data by its need to be processed on a distributed platform.  Hadoop seems to be the distributed platform of choice in managing Big Data, and I was wondering if anyone knows whether Erlang plays at all into the Big Data universe.  On the face of it, it seems Erlang could be most useful in managing distributed clusters of data processing.  Anyone have any thoughts or experience in this area?

 

Cheers,
