The expanding alternative universe of Hadoop

Merv Adrian:

Hadoop has moved from a coarse-grained blunt instrument for largely ETL- style workloads to an expanding stack for virtually any IT task big data professionals will want to undertake. What is Hadoop now? It’s a candidate to be the alternative universe for data processing, with over 20 components that span a wide array of functions.

As the Hadoop alternative universe is expanding, its complexity continues to grow too. The whole purpose of bBig data platforms” from Cloudera and Hortonworks is to make this universe navigable, but it feels the majority of travelers still needs a lot of patience and courage to discover it.
