Great article. I used to think Hadoop was a powerful software but, from some of the use cases it's used for, I began to have doubts. So much so that I was tempted to write an article that took a dig at Hadoop by asking "What Is The Difference Between Hadoop
And Excel?" and answering "Hadoop Thinks It's Excel But Excel Doesn't Think It's Hadoop!". I'll forthwith ditch that article!
That said, any idea what does a news item like "Hadoop Raises $MM Funding" mean? If there isn't a single entity called Hadoop, where does all that money go?
Great overview. The technology is very powerful in the hands of people that know what they are trying to accomplish and what KPIs they intend to use to measure success.
