Hadoop and the honeycomb

I love the kind of honey where they leave a piece of the honeycomb in the jar.  Its great to chew on when you’ve used up all the honey.  Reminds me of this big old oak tree we used to pull honey out of in the woods as a kid.  Where was I?

Oh yeah.  I was showing my daughter how the honeycomb is made up of perfectly shaped hexagons, then it hit me.  Honeycombs are great illustrations of the 3x block replication factor in Hadoop which inspired us to create this logo.
