Hadoop Summit 2013 in San Jose

It has been a privilege to present at the Hadoop Summits this year in Amsterdam and San Jose.   This week was one of the best networking weeks I've ever had at a conference.  Great seeing all my Oracle, VMware, Rackspace and MySQL friends as well as meeting a lot of new friends in the Hadoop ecosystem.

Key takeaways:
  • Hadoop's disruption of the IT industry is accelerating.
  • Hadoop 2.0 will significantly increase enterprise adoption.
  • YARN is the distributing operating system of the future.
  • Incredible success stories of the ROI around Hadoop.
  • Open source community is about innovation, community and sharing.
  • Lots of analytics software competing to run on Hadoop.  This will be the big battleground.
  • Hortonworks reinforces it's innovation and leadership in defining the roadmap for Hadoop.
  • Hortonworks constantly demonstrated their platform expertise with Hadoop. 
  • Hadoop is a high performance commercial computing environment.
Two coolest things I liked at the conference:

  • An 8-node Raspberry PI Hadoop cluster.
  • Creating a multi-node (VM) Hadoop cluster on your laptop using the Hortonworks Sandbox.

I was also able to barter for a Yahoo soccer ball (all it cost me was a Hortonworks water bottle). :)
