Thoughts about cloud computing, analytics and the programmable web

Cloudera has created quite a buzz with its recent launch: great talent and great backers without a doubt. Business plan? I'm just not as excited as everybody else. I like Hadoop and what I have read about Cloudera makes it look like a solid business. Game changer? I find it hard to believe. This launch and press coverage reminds me of another startup from many years ago: e-pinions.com -and I'm sure there must be dozens of other examples. Great talent, tons of press, overblown expectations. I hope Cloudera has a better future.
