NoHadoop? NoMapReduce?


After seen this post, I bought the domains nohadoop.org and nomapreduce.org to build a community and share knowledges about these topics.

MapReduce provides easy-to-program but, you can realize that it's only under specific conditions. In short, the many practical problems requires more flexible and versatile computing system. Actually, we (Apache Hama team) was also really skeptical about use of the MapReduce in the area of linear algebra, machine learning, graph algorithms ,.., etc, and we got rid of dependencies of MapReduce and HBase in the end.


The development of technology is always inevitable, irreversible and unavoidable!
