Gone Viral: Next Generation of Apache Hadoop MapReduce

Hi Folks,

I’d like to congratulate Arun Murthy on his very popular Hadoop Summit talk. SlideShare.net reports that his presentation has gone viral. They originally promoted it as the most discussed SlideShare.net presentation on Linked In and yesterday they promoted it as the most Tweeted about presentation. In both cases, the presentation was moved up to the front page.

Arun is a Hortonworks founder and MapReduce expert. His talk does a great job of highlighting some of the current limitations in MapReduce and then outlining the roadmap for improving areas such as scalability, high availability, cluster utilization and support for paradigms other than MapReduce.

You can find Arun’s talk HERE and other Hortonworks presentations from Hadoop Summit HERE. You can also follow Arun on Twitter.

Thanks, we’re very happy to see the interest in Arun and the our MapReduce team’s work,

@jeric14, @hortonworks
