Re: A collection of marketing flyers from 16 vendors
Srini, Thanks for your comments. Actian, Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, and Pivotal didn't exist in 2006, and most have arrived since 2010. Among the giants, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and Teradata have only added support for Hadoop in the last two to three years. "Connecting elements" across all 16 include insight on their offerings for analytical DBMS, in-memory options, streaming options, Hadoop distributions, and hardware/software appliances. And if you read each analysis, I think that you'll find that it's far from a regurgitation of marketing brochures. There are plenty of insights into strategy, market approach, strengths and weaknesses and more.
