Re: Too much focus on Hadoop?
It's the new de facto standard for data storage and processing. There could be other data platforms that are purpose built and much better than Hadoop platform, but it's the adoption and open source that's driving Hadoop.
With introduction of YARN framework, it just opened gates for new ways of processing data. Literally, there are no limits on type of data and size of data that we can store in Hadoop and data processing methods.
In the next year or so, we will see many applications are built for Hadoop. It's inevitable. We are already seeing this shift in the industry very fast.
It's the new standard for DATA. If organizations are not looking at Hadoop I think they are falling behind. It's only my perspective.
