Google Trends: Hadoop versus Big Data versus MapReduce

I was just looking through some slides handed to me by Cloudera’s John Kreisa and Mike Olson during our meeting last week and one of them jumped out at me.

It contains a graphic showing a Google Trends result for searches for Hadoop and “Big Data”. See for yourself why the graphic stood out:

In case you hadn’t guessed, Hadoop is in blue and “Big Data” is in red.

Even taken with a pinch of salt it’s a huge validation of the level of interest in Hadoop. Removing the quotes to search for Big Data (red) doesn’t change the overall picture.

See also Hadoop (blue) versus MapReduce (red).

UPDATE: eBay’s Oliver Ratzesberger puts the comparisons above in perspective somewhat by comparing Joomla vx Hadoop.
