One of the challenges of working with Hadoop environments has been maintaining the infrastruc­ture for big data projects. That's where cloud makes things easier and, increas­ingly, has served as the underlying infra­structure platform of choice for Hadoop initiatives. At the same time, not every­thing has moved to the cloud just yet for big data environments. Many IT managers expect to live in a hybrid environment. They are planning for multi-cloud data management to deliver business value and are also still relying on old-school approaches and manual tools to support their data environments.
