Hadoop Adoption Proves Slow But Steady

How Much Data Are You Managing in Production?  Once Hadoop goes into production, the amount of data starts to scale rapidly. About half the Hadoop systems in production have more than 500TB.

A survey of 107 attendees at the recent O’Reilly Strata conference conducted by Dimensional Insight on behalf of Rainstor, a provider of database technology that runs natively on Hadoop, finds that while the adoption of Hadoop in the enterprise is proceeding steadily, there are significant challenges that need to be overcome.

Issues surrounding how long it takes to get a Hadoop application into production coupled with a lack of real-time capabilities are proving to be important barriers to deployment. As a result, the respondents are reporting that both the number of Hadoop applications and the size of the overall Hadoop environment remain relatively small.
