Thoughts on the Birthday of Hadoop
April 17, 2013
Hadoop is celebrating its seventh anniversary and it marks an important landmark for open source software. The Apache Software Foundation is instrumental in developing and supporting fledgling open source offerings, and graduating them up to useful components for the developer community. Read the full report in the article, “Seven Thoughts on Hadoop’s Seventh Birthday.”
The article begins:
“It has only been seven years since Hadoop’s first release, and think of the amazing things it has already empowered us to accomplish. Doug Cutting (Hadoop’s founder, Apache Software Foundation chair and Cloudera’s chief architect) published seven thoughts on Hadoop’s seventh birthday at the Cloudera blog, and we sought his permission to repost those here. “
Many other open source superstars started their lives in the Apache Software Foundation incubator. Apache Lucene and Solr is an instrumental component of many of the emerging open source enterprise solutions, particularly those that focus on unstructured or big data. LucidWorks uses Lucene and Solr to provide award winning enterprise search solutions.
