Timothy Prickett Morgan for The Register about Project Savanna, a collaboration between Mirantis, Hortonworks, and Red Hat:
Batman and Robin. Peanut butter and chocolate. OpenStack and Hadoop. These
are things that go together, with the latter pairing being something that
commercial OpenStack distie Mirantis, commercial Hadoop distie Hortonworks,
and commercial KVM and Linux distie (and soon to be OpenStack
commercializer) Red Hat are putting together under a new OpenStack effort
dubbed Project Savanna.
Hadoop is at the age where everyone tries to package it and claim they’ll be the Red Hat of the Hadoop ecosystem. I cannot really dot the i-s and cross the t-s, but my gut feeling is that right now all these are actually more similar to the attempts of bringing Linux to the desktop.
We know how successful these have been so far.
