muSOAing for 5/30/11 – Can I use HBase instead of…….

This is an oft posed question these days. Folks looking to cut down on their DW licensing costs, looking for alternatives. The Hadoop/HBase platform is definitely a candidate for many popular use cases. This platform is rapidly evolving and is already turning out to be a big challenge to all the traditional DW players. Talk about disruptive technology, this is as disruptive as it can get. Map/Reduce has changed the entire status quo. It has unleashed a veritable Tech Tsunami that is threatening to wash away those who are unwilling to acknowledge and adapt to this rapidly changing landscape. All my blogs in the near future will focus on BigData as there is a lot happening in this space and hence a lot to mull and ponder upon.
