EMC Greenplum makes Big Data news, adds fully supported Hadoop appliance to product line. Your reaction?
A lot of companies are looking to create ‘appliances’. Unfortunately I and others are suspect in terms of the overall value that they bring to an organization. One size doesn’t fit all.
Call me skeptical, but I view this as a company trying to remain relevant when faced with a disruptive technology. This is true of IBM,Oracle, EMC, and even Sun before Oracle bought them. Even SyncSort is doing this…
I’m sorry for being negative, but I think the issue is that companies are trying to repackage their existing technology to make their company relative rather than trying to understand the underlying aspects of the disruptive tech and how to create new tech to bridge the gap.
In truth if you listen to the customer, it isn’t an appliance that they want, but a prepackaged solution… And yes there is a difference… 😉NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
