A Hadoop distribution has multiple Apache components, and possibly some
vendor-specific components. This graphic shows best practice for the order
in which to migrate the various components. The Hortonworks services team
has automated some of the migration steps to simplify the process.
It’s been only a few years since the inception of the Hadoop platform as a result of the collaboration of people that believed in open source and community. Now we are already talking about vendor-specific components. I’m afraid to think that in just a couple of years, we might be talking only about vendor-based, proprietary distributions of Hadoop.
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.
