Did I say everyone wants a piece of Hadoop’s future profit?
From an infrastructure perspective, NetApp will simplify setup & scale with our first Hadoop Open Storage System (HOSS) informally aka “Hadoopler”, while delivering improved performance and storage efficiency. Although we recognize that RAID is not yet generally considered an HDFS best-practice within historical Hadoop whitepapers and Wiki’s, NetApp aims to work with the Hadoop community to educate and change that perception for our targeted Enterprise HDFS use-cases.
The good news is that NetApp will not create yet another proprietary Hadoop distribution, but rather focus on providing HDFS RAID configurations for DataNodes which separate data protection from job and query completion.
