The state of Hadoop and what’s up with Rackspace?


Not surprisingly, Cloudera’s chief strategy officer Mike Olson sees Cloudera (!) at the forefront of Hadoop use by real, live enterprise companies.

But he has other interesting takes on the state of adoption by smaller companies and why the legacy database vendors are keeping tabs on the Hadoop players while Cloudera keeps its eye on Google(s goog.)

But first off, Derrick Harris and I try to sort out the surprise retirement of Rackspace(s rax) CEO Lanham Napier; why video streaming giant Netflix(s nflx) is turning to deep learning (running atop Amazon(s amzn)Web Services of course) to know more about what you watch and what you may want to watch;  what was hot in big data this week  at the Strata conference.

Oh, and whatever else captured our attention in the moment. So, settle in and give us a listen.
