Hadoop Makes a Big Data Splash

Hadoop has become nearly synonymous with Big Data. It’s the database engine that distributes and manages workloads in a way that makes Big Data possible. Okay, that’s a major oversimplification, but you get the general idea.

Hadoop’s power is represented by the top-flight Big Data startups using it, such as Cloudera, Hortonworks, and MapR, which all offer commercial distributions. Hadoop is at the core of important projects at major companies, such as those at Facebook, Yahoo!, and Amazon. In fact, Hadoop providers claim that more than half of the Fortune 50 is already using Hadoop.

Of course, Hadoop isn’t the only game in town. There are Big Data alternatives like Disco, Storm, and proprietary systems from Software AG, LexisNexis, ParStream, and others. Anytime technology takes off the way Hadoop has there will be kinks and pain points along the way, opening the door for even more innovation.
