3 or 4 years ago the term BigData and Hadoop gathered lot of attention. Now I guess the hype train has passed on to AI ML and perhaps Blockchain. In the current environment how are companies with commercial offerings around open source projects doing? Specifically interested in knowing about Cloudera, Databricks and Hortonworks.

    Wouldn’t Cloud provider like Google/Amazon/Microsoft render these hadoop companies obsolete in the long run? I’m not sure what are their competitive advantages anymore

      Yes. I feel so too. The complexity of managing the IT infrastructure is too much. However the onprem infrastructure is not going away anytime soon.

      Hadoop in the cloud. https://www.cloudera.com/products/cloud.html

      Hadoop will not be obsolete due to cloud providers.

      Isn’t databricks in the same boat? Their business model is exactly the same as others.

      Cloudera and Horton works aren't doing great because they were so centered on hadoop whereas databricks is spark centered. Spark is still big data champ with few if any real alternatives to dethrone it right now. Databricks' pricing is a big challenge for them since they are often multiple times more expensive on the surface

      Databricks is doing fine they just need to get people off of EMR, their pricing is 2-3x though so that is hard

    Databricks is doing really well. Hyper growth. The Hadoop companies are not doing great because they have only solved the storage problem, and when it comes to the cloud, none of the tech they developed matter (HDFS is replaced by S3, MapReduce replaces by Spark, and YARN is useless in the cloud).

      Does data bricks have a consulting practice as well? People who help customers build solutions on data bricks platform?

      Short answer, no. My company (and me specifically) is a data bricks partner and implementer if you're interested

      Databricks does do some professional services, but not a lot. There are a lot of system integrator partners that do more.

    Two of the big names in this area, Hortonworks and Cloudera, are publicly listed companies. Their current available numbers seem fine at a quick glance.
