I’m not the only one confused by Michael Stonebraker’s Hadoop is dead theme. Edward Capriolo:
Let me tell you a story of how I got into hadoop and hive. I was following advice like Stonebreaker’s that said Parallel DBs are the way to go. But I quickly found out Parallel Database are too rich for my blood. Now, I am not telling you or anyone else that you should not spend money on Parallel DBs, because maybe you have the money, or maybe you need some of those things the parallel database provides. But for things I need to do:
- store tons of data
- processed it reasonably fast
- be LOW on the cost scale
Hadoop and hive work fine for me.
