Hadoop: Answering the Basic Questions: Why, What, How, Where

A post on the HP blog answering 5 questions about Hadoop:

  1. Why Hadoop?
  2. What is Hadoop?
  3. What does it do?
  4. What is it good for?
  5. What’s the future?

With the current momentum behind Hadoop, there’s no question that it’s here to stay. But it’s best to think of Hadoop as a starting point for interesting developments to come.

As you probably know, HP owns Vertica, a column-oriented SQL database for data warehousing and BI, but when talking about Big Data HP includes both Vertica and Hadoop.
