LXer: Open source Hadoop engineers may spin off from Yahoo!

Published at LXer:

Yahoo! may spin off its Hadoop engineering division, creating a startup offering support and services around the open-source distributed number-crunching platform, according to a report citing people familiar with the matter. The Wall Street Journal reports that Yahoo! is "weighing" a Hadoop spin-off and that Silicon Valley venture capital firm Benchmark Capital has discussed the possibility with the company. Such a startup in which Yahoo! would retain a stake would compete with the likes of Cloudera, the Northern California startup founded by an all-star lineup of former Yahoo!, Google, Oracle, and Facebook employees.
