Funding for Platfora, Analytics Platform for Hadoop

Andreessen Horowitz Leads $5.7M Round In Analytics Platform For Hadoop Data Platfora:

Platfora works with existing Hadoop clusters, including Cloudera, MapR, and Amazon EMR, among others, and automatically turns these huge amounts of data into dimensional and predictive dashboards, reports and insights. The company’s server architecture enables sub-second report delivery, analytics overlay, and drill down performance.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the guys building on top of Hadoop made a lot more money than those providing Hadoop itself.
