Hadoop’s Next Big Battle: Apache Versus ODP

Apr 24, 2015 |

  When the Open Data Platform launched in February, it effectively split the Hadoop community down the middle, with Hortonworks, Pivotal, and IBM throwing in with the ODP, and MapR and Cloudera keeping their chips on the Apache Software Foundation. The future of Hadoop is still very much an open question, and how the ODP-ASF split plays out could be a big factor in Hadoop’s future. Everybody seems to agree that the Apache Software Foundation has done an admirable job Read more…

From Spiders to Elephants: The History of Hadoop

Apr 15, 2015 |

Have you ever wonder where this thing called Hadoop came from, or even why it’s here? Marko Bonaci has wondered such things, too. In fact, he wondered about them so much that he decided to write a History of Hadoop chapter for his upcoming book, “Spark in Action.” Bonaci’s History of Hadoop starts humbly enough in 1997, when Doug Cutting sat down to write the first edition of the Lucene search engine. In 2000, Cutting placed Lucene into the open Read more…

AtScale Claims to Mask Hadoop Complexity for OLAP-Style BI

Apr 7, 2015 |

AtScale came out of stealth mode today with new software designed to trick business intelligence tools into thinking that Hadoop is a standard database upon which they can perform OLAP-style analysis, as opposed to the huge distributed file system that it really is. Business intelligence tools like Tableau, Qlik, TIBCO Spotfire, and Microstrategy weren’t designed with Hadoop in mind, but they’re commonly used to analyze data stored in HDFS just the same. In response to this demand, the Hadoop community Read more…

Deep Dive Into Oracle’s Emerging Big Data Stack

Apr 6, 2015 |

Oracle has a lot of turf to protect in the multi-billion-dollar relational database market, where it owns a dominant share of the market. That creates a natural tension when it comes to big data technologies like Hadoop and NoSQL, and while the IT giant isn’t embarking upon a wholesale re-architecting its business plan around these emerging open source technologies, it is on its way toward building a comprehensive big data stack that solves many emerging use cases. Oracle has made Read more…

Does Hadoop Need a Reality Check?

Apr 3, 2015 |

Hadoop garners a lot of the attention when it comes to big data, to the point where “Hadoop” and “big data” are practically synonymous in many people’s minds. But by all accounts, few companies outside of the Fortune 1000 are using Hadoop directly, and despite the attention it receives, Hadoop is driving little in actual revenues. Hadoop was first conceived at Yahoo as a distributed file system (HDFS) and a processing framework (MapReduce) for indexing the Internet. It worked so Read more…

Tableau Aims to Speed Analytics with V9

Apr 6, 2015 |

Tableau Software has long positioned itself as a provider of tools that help you visualize big data, but hooking up to big data sources has not always been easy, and the resulting analyses have not always run as fast as people would like them. With the upcoming release of Tableau 9.0, the speed of analysis will be a big point of emphasis. If you had to pick one tool that all big data users seem to have, it’s Tableau’s. With Read more…

Actian Claims ‘Permanent Performance Advantage’ with SQL-on-Hadoop Tool

Mar 2, 2015 |

The SQL-on-Hadoop sweepstakes are by no means over. What’s been dubbed the “gateway drug” for Hadoop is just starting to gain traction. But according to Actian, its SQL-on-Hadoop offering, dubbed Vortex, is out to an early–and permanent–lead in the performance department. At the recent Strata + Hadoop World show, Actian pitted Vortex against Cloudera’s Impala right in the booth, where it largely re-created the results of a 2014 TPC Decision Support (TPC-DS) benchmark test that showed Vortex completing a job Read more…

Will Poor Data Security Handicap Hadoop?

Feb 19, 2015 |

Companies around the world are looking to Hadoop as a platform on which to perform big data analytics. Every day, petabytes of data are flowing into Hadoop clusters with the aim of giving them a competitive edge. However, the overall lack of built-in security threatens to hamper the open source platform’s spread before it’s really gotten off the ground. If you set out to build a big data platform today, chances are good that data security would be one of Read more…

Tachyon Support Coming to Big Data Hypervisor

Feb 3, 2015 |

Organizations that are deploying Apache Spark to do data science on big data may be inclined to invest in Tachyon, the in-memory file system that was developed next to Spark at the AMPlab. Getting Spark and Tachyon spun up and deployed on bare metal can be a hassle, but it’s a business opportunity to BlueData, which is aiming to be the VMware of big data. Tachyon is a distributed, in-memory file system designed to enable reliable file sharing at memory-speed Read more…
