I also thought he has developed a huge team in order to maintain big data at larger extent.

Great article, Doug. Glad you brought the viewpoints of the true pioneers, adopters and practitioner's viewpoints for the benefit of the mainstream enterprise. It was very interesting to read how they push front end code twice a day for analysis and Scuba. Any reason why they did not go with established in-memory databases - a technology which is pretty matured when they adopted MySQL for other purposes?

Parikh is pretty up front about the limitations of Hive that Facebook is tying to overcome, but he makes it clear it will take a yet-to-be-announced new platform -- expected this summer -- to address real-time analysis needs. Given the many real-time initiatives now underway in the Hadoop community, it will be interesting to see whether Facebook's new platform is embraced the way Hive was embraced way back when.

Sounds like he has developed a team with a large amount of Hadoop expertise. I wonder if they are hiring up a storm from outside, or grooming people who were already there.
