Defending Hadoop’s HDFS - Hortonworks Version

In reply to the attack to HDFS, Eric Baldeschwieler emphasizes the pros of HDFS:

  • Extreme low cost per byte
  • Very high bandwidth to support MapReduce workloads
  • Data reliability

but also the state of the HDFS competition:

  • not designed for Hadoop scale
  • not using commodity hardware or open source software
  • not meant for MapReduce
  • unproven technology
