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.
