IBM’s Arvind Krishna in an interview for The Register:
Krishna said he sees the potential for three pillars of data-based computing: SQL – to give a language and syntax for programming; Hadoop – to provide a MapReduce semantic; and a third pillar which is yet to be decided upon. That could be a MongoDB or HBase, but the market will pick a winner. “There’s a whole set: one will survive,” Krishna said.
I’m pretty sure that last part (i.e. “that could be MongoDB or HBase”) is a mis-quote as the rest of what Krishna is saying makes a lot of sense:
“Wherever open source is mature I will leverage it; I won’t compete with it. To believe one can be monolithic, proprietary and closed and … succeed is a foolish proposition. One has to embrace open source and work with an ecosystem. Clients are looking to you to add value.”
