GreenPlum Chorus

Do you know anything about GreenPlum’s Chorus?

I ask because I saw a blurb about it being open sourced and have been unable to find better documentation than:

Big Data Agility for your Data Science Team

Greenplum Chorus enables Big Data agility for your data science team. The first solution of its kind, Greenplum Chorus provides an analytic productivity platform that enables the team to search, explore, visualize, and import data from anywhere in the organization. It provides rich social network features that revolve around datasets, insights, methods, and workflows, allowing data analysts, data scientists, IT staff, DBAs, executives, and other stakeholders to participate and collaborate on Big Data. Customers deploy Chorus to create a self-service agile analytic infrastructure; teams can create workspaces on the fly with self-service provisioning, and then instantly start creating and sharing insights.

Chorus breaks down the walls between all of the individuals involved in the data science team and empowers everyone who works with your data to more easily collaborate and derive insight from that data.

That’s just gibberish.

That’s from: http://www.greenplum.com/products/chorus.

What I can find on the rest of the site isn’t any better:

The data sheet gives system requires but no practical details about Chorus.

The GreenPlum Forum for Chorus has two posts.

The Chorus Project wiki isn’t helpful either.

I may be interested in contributing to the project, particularly documentation, but without knowing more, it’s hard to say.
