IT WORLD CANADA CURATED Zettaset’s CTO says the Hadoop community is focused on its own needs, not the needs of the enterprise. Is that such a bad thing?
There are certainly pain points with Hadoop — the volume of machines involved, the specialist nature of the skill set, the multiple copies of data — but none of those is better served by commercializing Hadoop.
Those same enterprises that have the wherewithal to develop Hadoop to meet their needs have the wherewithal to hire and train the necessary staff to do so. And an open source Hadoop is an opportunity for specialized third-party development and support offerings.
