Hadoop can expand as needed
Forrester's Mike Gualtieri touches on a key point, the data sorting software is moved to the data locations on a cluster. What's also important is that Hadoop can expand to handle any amount of data and bring results on a big set as fast as a small one, thanks to its parallel processing. Just add servers to the cluster. Oops, the CEO just yawned. Quick, tell him and the CFO ithat it's much cheaper to use Hadoop than it is to use Oracle or DB2.
