Michael Stonebraker Says in Defense of NewSQL

The reason that this is becoming a hot-button issue is because IT organizations have invested billions of dollars in investments in SQL. Adding new data management frameworks such as Hadoop will add considerable expense in terms of finding people with the skills needed to manage these platforms. Stonebraker isn't necessarily against Hadoop; he's just pointing out that there is no one SQL database engine that fits all requirements and that before IT organizations adopt a NoSQL approach, they should consider other SQL-compatible approaches to solving the same problem.
