Not so much 'Hadoop has failed' as 'Hadoop has failed as a replacement for traditional data warehouses'.

I'll keep this in mind. My employer is investigating replacement options for a beautifully performant but incredibly expensive set of Vertica SQL clusters.


@mike I don't think that Hadoop would get cheaper, at least not for every use case

In our case our schemas change very rarely, so based on the article it seems like Hadoop might be a poor fit.

Of course I won't base my complete judgement just on that.
