Hadoop will be made better through engineering

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 through engineering.

You have to agree: there’s no engineering behind Hadoop. Just a huge number of intoxicated… brogrammers.
