Hadoop as operating system analog or much, much more?
Given the divergent strategies of Hortonworks and Cloudera, we're going to see lots of examples of these partnerships playing out. Hortonworks is focused strictly on the platform where as Cloudera is going after the analytic opportunities on top of the platform. Hortonworks is partnered with Microsoft, SAP and Teradata, for example, whereas Cloudera is getting in the face of these and other incumbent data management companies including IBM and even Oracle (even though the latter is technically a partner). Cloudera has plenty of bucks, too, thanks in large part to its recently announced $780 million partnerhip with Intel, so look out world; who knows where its ambitions will end?
