Why Kudu? – Do we need Yet Another Storage System?

Hadoop ecosystem had been blamed several times in the past 5 years because it contains too many components. So it is a fair question, why do we need another one? Especially, why would we need a brand new storage system, if we already have got HDFS and HBase. The goal of this presentation to give a detailed introduction around what has been changed in the past 5 years around Hadoop, what legitimates Kudu, and to provide a detailed architecture review.
