Yahoo Hadoop

June 11, 2009

Short honk: The Yahoo Developer Blog Network published “Announcing the Yahoo Distribution of Hadoop” here. IBM and Yahoo teamed on a version of OmniFind that is free. When I installed the system, I found it had a document limit. Bummer. Will the Hadoop distribution have a limit of some type that’s not in the Apache version? With all of the commercial pressures on Yahoo, what business is the company pursuing: online ads, banner ads, open source software, for fee email, or any of the other services available from the splash page? I’m puzzled. Anyone care to direct my thinking?
