Cloudera Enterprise and Hadoop evolution

I talked with Cloudera a couple of weeks ago in connection with the impending release of Cloudera Enterprise. I’d say: 

Cloudera sometimes sends confusing signals about its beliefs and strategies. For example, one can get different stories depending on whether one talks to:

But I predict that Cloudera will now stick for a while with more or less the strategy outlined above.

Naturally, we also talked about Hadoop adoption. Highlights of that part – no doubt somewhat biased towards Cloudera’s own customer base — included:

None of this is inconsistent with previous surveys of Hadoop use cases.

Various users talked at the Hadoop Summit this week. I wasn’t there, and won’t write about their stories for now. That said, Twitter’s slide deck from same has some interesting stuff, including:

    “Cloudera has half a dozen customers at the 75+ node production level.”

    Using Hadoop (and M/R) makes sense only on the level of at least Facebook or LinkedIn scale (1000 servers +, 5-10Pb data +). Why do you think this technology was invented by Google and not by Walmart IT department? Walmart is huge as well but their data volume is nothing in comparison with Google’s one. If you do not have Petabytes of data (read if you are not Google/Yahoo/Microsoft) you better look for something more traditional: custom built software or existing commercial product.

    One high end server with problem optimized software can easily beat 50-node Hadoop cluster on virtually any task.
