Maybe big data is the killer app for Google's cloud | Cloud Central | Scoop.it
Hadoop is popular and so is cloud computing, so it comes as no surprise that a battle would break out to establish the best place for running Hadoop. Lately, Google has been scoring some victories on the user side.
Peter Azzopardi's insight:

But none of this is empirical evidence that Compute Engine is, indeed, a better place to run big data workloads than is AWS or, for that matter, any other cloud.

Every large enterprise technology company now has a cloud computing narrative that can't be easily dismissed as cloudwashing. Does that make them good innovation partners?

Peter Azzopardi's insight:

Some sort of trainign is required for Private and Hybrid clouds but little for Public and as a Service variants.
