re: Spotify Embraces Hortonworks, Dumps Cloudera
I finally got the telling answer from Wouter at Spotify and it's as I suspected:

"We were not using Cloudera's commercial management software or support
beforehand," says Wouter. "Everything was done in-house, but we were
running CDH."

Kind of takes the bite out of "dumps" for Cloudera.

re: Spotify Embraces Hortonworks, Dumps Cloudera
Check out this big presentation from Wouter de Bie on Spotify's implementation and uses of Hadoop http://bit.ly/153evDr I didn't see any mention of Cloudera in the slides, so I suspect it's another of the many enterprises that have been setting up and supporting Hadoop clusters on their own (without benefit of support from the likes of Cloudera or Hortonworks). That's clearly changing now at Spotify with the selection of Hortonworks, but I'm still waiting to hear whether it was actually using proprietary Cloudera management software and/or support services.
