Steve Loughran on Hadoop commercial support options

Steve Loughran presents a great summary on the hadoop-core discussion group, worth repeating:

The picture is a bit confusing

Yahoo! is now HortonWorks. Their stated goal is to not have their own derivative release but to sell commercial support for the official Apache release.

So those selling commercial support are:

  • Cloudera
  • HortonWorks
  • MapR
  • EMC (reselling MapRTech, but had announced their own GreenPlum (free and commercial))
  • IBM BigInsights (free and commercial)
  • DataStax

+ Amazon, indirectly, that do their own derivative work of some release of Hadoop (which version is it based on?)
