Do You Have an Interesting HDFS Use Case?

Hi Folks,

I’m talking at a storage conference this month and I’d like to see if crowdsourcing will generate interesting examples and studies that I can include in my presentation.

What I’d like is interesting cases where HDFS has been compared to other storage technologies. Especially interested in cases where the decision was made to deploy HDFS rather than to buy an alternative technology.  Also interested in any large deployments where HDFS is being used for interesting things beyond being the serving layer for MapReduce and HBase.  If you have an interesting story, slides or other material that you think might be helpful for an HDFS presentations, please send me a note at HdfsCases2011-group@hortonworks.com.

Thanks!
