The State of Modern Big Data Solutions:
Are There Alternatives to Hadoop?

Over the past several years, Hadoop has been accepted as the most popular big data solution—but are there alternatives and better approaches?

As cloud solutions and other open-source technologies continue to mature, it’s important to question and reevaluate the role Hadoop’s core components have in modern environments when solving new challenges in big data.

In this video, Danil Zburivsky, Director of Big Data and Data Science at Pythian, talks about the rapidly changing state of building big data systems on Hadoop based on the problems and opportunities he sees first-hand with our big data customers.

Watch this video to learn more about the realities and challenges of adopting Hadoop today, including:
