muSOAing for 3/7/12 – Hadooptopia?

March 8, 2012

Installed CDH4 B1 on my new super duper quad core macbook pro.   Plan to check out all it’s new features especially HBase coprocessors and the new features of Hive.    Of course trying out namenode high availability feature is also there. With the release of all these features, Hadoop has become an even stronger and compelling platform.    The ever growing Hadoop ecosystem of products has something for everyone.

Along with this almost everybody who is a somebody in the Big Data space is building application layers on top of Hadoop to make it more user friendly and easier to use.   Companies like Pentaho, Tableau and Karmasphere come to mind.    Watch this space for updates on all of these features mentioned in this post.
