Hadoop: And then there were three | DBMS 2 : DataBase Management System Services

Excerpt from Curt Monash's take on ODP:
"Hortonworks, IBM, EMC Pivotal and others have announced a project called “Open Data Platform” to do … well, I’m not exactly sure what. Mainly, it sounds like:
  •  An attempt to minimize the importance of any technical advantages Cloudera or MapR might have. 
  • A face-saving way to admit that IBM’s and Pivotal’s insistence on having their own Hadoop distributions has been silly. 
  • An excuse for press releases. 
  • A source of an extra logo graphic to put on marketing slides."
