Hadoop Questions from Recent Webinar Span Spectrum

by Merv Adrian  |  February 25, 2015  |  1 Comment

This is a joint post authored with Nick Heudecker There were many questions asked after the last quarterly Hadoop webinar, and Nick and I have picked a few that were asked several times to respond to here. Just to be clear, we don’t generally give deep advice in blog posts – our blogs are descriptive, not […]

Which SQL on Hadoop? Poll Still Says “Whatever” But DBMS Providers Gain

by Merv Adrian  |  February 22, 2015  |  1 Comment

Since Nick Heudecker and I began our quarterly Hadoop webinars, we have asked our audiences what they expected to do about SQL several times, first in January 2014. With 164 respondents in that survey, 32% said “we’ll use what our existing BI tool provider gives us,” reflecting the fact that most adopters seem not to want […]

by Merv Adrian  |  February 18, 2015  |  4 Comments

This is a joint blog post between Nick Heudecker and Merv Adrian. It’s Strata week here in San Jose, and with that comes a flood of new announcements on products, partners and funding. Today’s big announcement came in the form of the Open Data Platform (ODP). A number of companies have signed on, but in […]

Hortonworks IPO – Why Now?

by Merv Adrian  |  November 17, 2014  |  9 Comments

Last week, many observers were surprised when Hortonworks’ S-1 for an initial public offering (IPO) was filed. And there are good reasons to be surprised. Why now? CEO Rob Bearden told VentureWire not long ago that he expected to exit 2014 “at a strong $100 million run rate” in preparation for a 2015 IPO. What changed? […]

Strata Spark Tsunami – Hadoop World, Part One

by Merv Adrian  |  October 31, 2014  |  10 Comments

New York’s Javits Center is a cavernous triumph of form over function. Giant empty spaces were everywhere at this year’s empty-though-sold-out Strata/Hadoop World, but the strangely-numbered, hard to find, typically inadequately-sized rooms were packed. Some redesign will be needed next year, because the event was huge in impact and demand will only grow. A few of […]

by Merv Adrian  |  July 24, 2014  |  5 Comments

Interest from the leading players continues to drive investment in the Hadoop marketplace. This week Teradata made two acquisitions – Revelytix and Hadapt – that enrich its already sophisticated big data portfolio, while HP made a $50M investment in, and joined the board of, Hortonworks. These moves continue the ongoing effort by leading players. 4 of […]

Hadoop is in the Mind of the Beholder

by Merv Adrian  |  March 24, 2014  |  11 Comments

This post was jointly authored by Merv Adrian (@merv) and Nick Heudecker (@nheudecker) and appears on both blogs. In the early days of Hadoop (versions up through 1.x), the project consisted of two primary components: HDFS and MapReduce. One thing to store the data in an append-only file model, distributed across an arbitrarily large number […]

BYOH – Hadoop’s a Platform. Get Used To It.

by Merv Adrian  |  October 9, 2013  |  9 Comments

When is a technology offering a platform? Arguably, when people build products assuming it will be there. Or extend their existing products to support it, or add versions designed to run on it. Hadoop is there. The age of Bring Your Own Hadoop (BYOH) is clearly upon us.  Specific support for components such as Pig […]

Hadoop Summit Recap Part Two – SELECT FROM hdfs WHERE bigdatavendor USING SQL

by Merv Adrian  |  July 15, 2013  |  10 Comments

Probably the most widespread, and commercially imminent, theme at the Summit was “SQL on Hadoop.” Since last year, many offerings have been touted, debated, and some have even shipped. In this post, I offer a brief look at where things stood at the Summit and how we got there. To net it out: offerings today […]

Hadoop Summit Recap Part One – A Ripping YARN

by Merv Adrian  |  July 10, 2013  |  7 Comments

I had the privilege of keynoting this year’s Hadoop Summit, so I may be a bit prejudiced when I say the event confirmed my assertion that we have arrived at a turning point in Hadoop’s maturation. The large number of attendees (2500, a solid increase – and more “suits”) and sponsors (70, also a significant uptick) made […]
