I find it amazing how technologies that are put together with rubber bands and chewing gum become the de-facto standard in which all other technologies are measured. Sadly, it’s easy to see why.
Not only is it complicated, but these layers are built on top of inefficiency.
Hey, but it’s free! Or is it? Inefficiency sells hardware, complexity sells services. It’s no wonder that the big solution providers are backing it. Unfortunately, you will rapidly learn that free gets pretty expensive and by the time you realize it, you have just been Hadooped!
Bashing Hadoop when you have nothing else to offer is a fashionable new business model these days.
