Announcing release of HadoopDB (shorter version)

I'm pleased to announce the release of HadoopDB. HadoopDB is:
  1. A hybrid of DBMS and MapReduce technologies targeting analytical query workloads
  2. Designed to run on a shared-nothing cluster of commodity machines, or in the cloud
  3. An attempt to fill the gap in the market for a free and open source parallel DBMS
  4. Much more scalable than currently available parallel database systems and DBMS/MapReduce hybrid systems (see longer blog post).
  5. As scalable as Hadoop, while achieving superior performance on structured data analysis workloads
