Interest in Apache Spark surpassed Apache Hadoop for the first time last month, according to Google Trends. While it’s not a definitive statement of Spark’s actual impact on big data processing in the real world, it does indicate the enormous momentum the in-memory analytics software has garnered during a phenomenal run in 2014. As you can see from the Google Trends graphic–which compares the relative popularity of search terms that people enter and prevalence of news articles about given topics–Apache Read more…
Unless you’ve been living in a cave without Wi-Fi, you’ve probably noticed a revolution occurring in the world of video. Not only are hundreds of millions of young people using Web services like YouTube, Netflix, and Amazon to watch their favorite TV shows, but they’re tuning into new content created by thousands of independent publishers. The old media apple cart hasn’t just been turned over–it’s been run over by a train. Or maybe, it’s been run over by an elephant. Read more…
The free analytics question comes up over and over again, especially as it pertains to open source analytic offerings. I don’t think a day goes by when someone at a company doesn’t ask, “Why should I pay for analytics when I can use (fill in the blank) open source statistics/analytics?” You will find many lengthy discussions all over the Web on just this topic. Often the discussion is much more impassioned than it needs to be. I will address the Read more…
Talk about information overload. If you were one of the lucky 5,000 to attend the Strata + Hadoop World conference last week, then you were subject to a marathon session of big data keynotes delivered continually for the better part of two days. It’s understandable that you missed out on some of the big data news announced at the show, including Cray’s new Hadoop appliance, or the latest tools from Revolution Analytics and Tableau. Don’t worry: We’ll get you back Read more…
Hadoop has matured at a rapid rate since it broke into the mainstream several years ago. With billions in venture funding, an eager community of developers, and a thriving ISV community, the open source big data platform seems poised to take a big step into the wider enterprise. But according to Cloudera’s chief strategy officer Mike Olson, Hadoop’s next big move may be to just disappear. Olson predicted Hadoop’s disappearance during a keynote address at last week’s Strata + Hadoop Read more…
News In Brief
At first glance, the partnership that Cloudera and MongoDB unveiled today is a bit of a head scratcher. While the two companies are arguably the biggest software vendors in the nascent space, they swim in opposite ends of the big data pool. It turns out, that’s exactly why the companies felt they needed to work together.
Cloudera’s motto is “Ask bigger questions.” In light of today’s news regarding a mind-boggling $900 million funding round and a $4.1 billion valuation, one big question rises to the surface: What in the world is Cloudera going to do with all that money?
Intel today announced it will cease development of its own Hadoop distribution and instead will invest in and promote Cloudera’s distribution to its customers. The surprise move confirms a rumor that surfaced last week that had Intel taking a significant stake in Cloudera during its latest round of venture funding.
Cloudera today announced an additional $160 million in funding, bringing the Hadoop distributor’s total venture haul to $300 million. The software company now values itself at more than $2 billion, according to Bloomberg, which also reported that Hadoop rival Intel has invested in the firm.
Not long ago, the rules for what constituted a data warehouse were fairly well defined. The schema was fixed, you could say, and was based primarily on relational database technology designed to process structured data. My, how times have changed. Last week, Gartner for the first time accepted non-relational technologies–including those based on Hadoop and NoSQL–in its annual Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouses report.
