After many years working with big data mining teams/apps my considered 
opinion is use SAS or one of its peers! It costs money but it works.
And the savings in development time far outweigh the costs. And if you 
have to manage 100TB or more then the costs of SAS licenses are likely 
to be the least of your worries! And if you are really serious about it
run SAS on top of a Teradata $torage $ystem...

I have no commercial connection with either company, just an admirer of 
their technology solutions.
