Hadoop

Alex Woodie notes a change at Cloudera:

The old Cloudera developed and distributed its Hadoop stack using a mix of open source and proprietary methods and licenses. But the new Cloudera will be 100% open source, just like Hortonworks, its one-time Hadoop rival that it acquired in January. But will developing its data platform completely in the open differentiate it from cloud competitors?

In a blog post published yesterday under the title “Our Commitment to Open Source Software,” Cloudera executives Charles Zedlewski and Arun Murthy laid out the company’s new plan to develop and distribute everything in the open.

This was one of the big reasons I preferred Hortonworks over Cloudera when they were separate companies: Hortonworks had this model. Hopefully it leads Cloudera to success.
