Finally, at least, the market for Hadoop distributions appears complete. There are five rather distinct offerings from five rather distinct providers — Cloudera, EMC Greenplum, Hortonworks, IBM and MapR (six if you include Amazon’s Elastic MapReduce cloud service) — and each has its merits.
2013 is going to be the year when we see [Hadoop adoption] go a lot more mainstream and [turn] into a tornado.
I still think there’s something missing. While Amazon Elastic MapReduce added support for MapR and ex-Facebook Hive creators announced an Amazon hosted on-demand Hadoop service, I think the Hadoop market could benefit from having a second option for on-demand cloud-based Hadoop services. Is it only me?
