Dan Woods prefacing an interview with Scott Gnau of Teradata:
In this vision, because Hadoop can store unstructured and
structured information, because it can scale massively,
because it is open source, because it allows many forms of
analysis, because it has a thriving ecosystem, it will
become the one repository to rule them all.
In my view, the most extreme advocates for Hadoop need to sober up and right
size both expectations and time frames. Hadoop is important but it won’t
replace all other repositories. Hadoop will change the world of data, but
not in the next 18 months. The open source core of Hadoop is a masterful
accomplishment, but like many open source projects, it will be made better
You have to agree: there’s no engineering behind Hadoop. Just a huge number of intoxicated… brogrammers.
