re: Big Data Debate: Will HBase Dominate NoSQL?
This debate sparks many questions for me. Can open source purists, for example, detail how HBase will overcome the flaws that DataStax cites -- some of which MapR has addressed, albeit with a proprietary, commercial approach? DataStax can certainly say it integrates Cassandra with Hadoop (providing the same shared infrastructure advantages of the combo of HBase and Hadoop), but why do I hear little to nothing about customers relying on DataStax for their Hadoop deployments? Can you name names of customers that actually do it all (Cassandra, Hadoop and Solr) with DataStax' software? The focus is clearly on Cassandra.
Hortonworks and Cloudera, what's your take, as you clearly have a big stake in HBase success?
