Today in Cloud

I am really happy to see that Cloudera is hosting Hadoop World in October. Some were wondering what would happen to Hadoop now that Yahoo’s search engine no longer needs it, and it looks like Cloudera will pick up the slack. The startup already grabbed Hadoop creator Doug Cutting from Google’s ranks earlier this month, and now it looks to be taking over carrying on the Hadoop Developers Summit. Cloudera certainly has the brainpower to carry the Hadoop torch, now it just needs the bankroll to spur innovation at Yahoo’s level.
