If you want to hear about the top, hot data startups in Boston, Silicon Valley and beyond, click on this week’s Structure Show with guest Andy Palmer, who as co-founder of Vertica Systems and VoltDB knows a little something about the field.

Palmer, who is now an angel investor, co-founder of Data-Tamer, and founder of Koa Labs, sounds off on the difference between Boston and Silicon Valley for entrepreneurs; the top data-oriented startups; the importance of creative destruction; and what ColdFusion genius J.J. Allaire is up to.

Derrick Harris and I speculate about Joyent’s future (is it with Dell(s dell)?); why everyone is dropping big bucks on flash storage companies, and try suss out the NSA privacy panic only to give up in exhaustion.  But we’ll be recharged for more discussion of all this next week at Structure:Europe in London. Join us in person or via webcast

Today’s show is brought to you by Mobile Day.

    Great interview – particularly got really interesting when Andy joins at minute 16. Couldn’t agree more on his assessment that the infrastructure work has been done when it comes to Big Data.

    The next leap is the Data-Driven-Applications and the Analytics!

    Analytically Yours,
