This industry analyst report takes up important considerations when planning a Hadoop implementation. While some companies have the skill and the will to build, operate, and maintain large Hadoop clusters of their own, a growing number are choosing not to make investments in house and are looking to the cloud.
In this report, Gigaom Research explores:
- How large Hadoop clusters behave differently from the small groups of machines developers typically use to learn
- What models are available for running a Hadoop cluster, and which is best for specific situations
- What are the costs and benefits of using Hadoop as a ervice
With Hadoop delivered as a service from trusted providers such as Altiscale, companies are able to focus less on managing and optimizing Hadoop and more on the business insights Hadoop can deliver.
