Reactions to Pivotal HD
We, at Greenplum, announced Pivotal HD on February 25, 2013, including HAWQ, the superfast Greenplum MPP SQL engine running directly on top of Hadoop Distributed File System. It became “talk of the town” at O’Reilly Strata Conference. Almost every presenter at Strata that talked about their “SQL” on Hadoop got asked “How does it compare to HAWQ”?
The blogosphere, analysts, news outlets, and competitors have been busy responding, too. Here is a compilation of some of the reactions that I have read, grouped by category, in no particular order:
