The cloud reduces the barrier to entry for many small and medium size enterprises into analytics. Hadoop and related frameworks like Hive, Oozie, Sqoop are becoming tools of choice for deriving insights from data. However, these frameworks were designed for in-house datacenters which have different tradeoffs from a cloud environment and making them run well in the cloud presents some challenges. In this talk, we describe how we've extended Hadoop and Hive to exploit these new tradeoffs and offer them as part of the Qubole Data Service (QDS). We will also present use-cases that show how QDS is making it extremely easy for an end user to use these technologies in the cloud.
