Yahoo declares Hadoop ready for the Enterprise

Alex Williams posted several months ago about Hadoop gaining more commercial acceptance. The open source distributed filesystem is used by Amazon, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Windows Azure and other major web/technology companies. IBM recently announced InfoSphere BigInsights, which uses Hadoop and BigSheets to analyze large volumes of data using a browser.

Cloudera is probably the most well known startup selling add-ons and support for Hadoop. An article in the NYTimes describes Datameer's Hadoop Helper, a tool that tries to make Hadoop easier to use by IT depts (without having to consult Hadoop wizards), combining their own interface with numerous mathematical and software tools. They also added support for the Katta indexing system to improve performance.

David Needle provides more details on Yahoo's recent announcement at the Hadoop Developer Conference that Hadoop is ready for broader enterprise use due to support being added for Kerberos and the Oozie workflow engine
