  1. Interesting, More action in data mining. However this round could see more traction for the
    new players rather than traditional data mining biggies . Could be interesting times to come.
    Reminds me of how the internet changed the dynamics of the computing and left many client server
    companies confused.

  2. Oh for G*ds sake!

    Map/ Reduce or hadoop or whatever is only applicable for very large datasets where the shared nothing approach tends to do well [i know, i did a PhD on this topic] . Hence it’s applicable to 1% of the data management problems out there – if we are very generous. The usual suspects – social networks, defense, etc. would probably be but to name a few.

    To Compare CLoudera to Redhat – an operating system vendor which has wide applicability to the data center – for all – not just for those with massive data volumes, is preposterous!
