LexisNexis has been developing the technology, dubbed HPCC Systems, for the past 10 years. 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."
