I am the most excited, however, about the prospect of integrating with Apache Hadoop project. Known primarily as the technology for Big Data applications, Hadoop has gained wide-spread adoption in the industry. Similar to CloudStack which is inspired by Amazon’s EC2 service, Hadoop is modeled after Google’s MapReduce and Google File System technologies. And just like CloudStack, Hadoop is implemented in Java.
Hortonworks is sharing the same feeling:
Today’s announcement also highlights the great synergies between CloudStack and Apache Hadoop. As the first cloud platform in the industry to join the ASF, CloudStack becomes the logical cloud choice for organizations that prefer an open source option for their cloud and big data infrastructure. Hortonworks is excited to work with the CloudStack project team to identify opportunities where Hadoop components can be used to back Cloud APIs and also where Cloud APIs can be used to deploy Hadoop.
