The project founder, Roman Shaposhnik defining what is Apache Bigtop:
The elevator pitch for Bigtop has always been: Bigtop is to Hadoop what
Debian is to Linux. The most surprising development to me was how well that
message resonates with the commercial vendors in the Big Data space. I’m
still amazed at how quickly the “Powered by Bigtop” list is growing.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
