Hosted MapReduce and Hadoop offerings

Hadoop in the cloud

Today’s question is: where are we regarding MapReduce/Hadoop in the cloud? That is, what are the offerings of Hadoop-as-a-Service or other hosted MapReduce implementations, currently?

A year ago, InfoQ ran a story Hadoop-as-a-Service from Amazon, Cloudera, Microsoft and IBM which will serve us as a baseline here. This article contains the following statement:

According to a 2011 TDWI survey, 34% of the companies use big data analytics to help them making decisions. Big data and Hadoop seem to be playing an important role in the future.

One year later, we learn from a recent MarketsAndMarkets study, Hadoop & Big Data Analytics Market – Trends, Geographical Analysis & Worldwide Market Forecasts (2012 – 2017) that …

The Hadoop market in 2012 is worth $1.5 billion and is expected to grow to about $13.9 billion by 2017, at a [Compound Annual Growth Rate] of 54.9% from 2012 to 2017.

In the past year there have also been some quite vivid discussions around the topic ‘Hadoop in the cloud’.

So, here are some current offerings and announcements I’m aware of:

… and now it’s up to you dear reader – I would appreciate it if you could point me to more offerings and/or announcements you know of, concerning MapReduce and Hadoop in the cloud!
