Need help with your Hadoop deployment? This company may help!

A group of top Silicon Valley engineers (ex-Yahoo, Facebook, Google) have come together to launch a new startup called Cloudera.
Not yet launched, it intends to help other companies adopt a promising software platform called Hadoop.



Hadoop is an open-source software project (written in Java) designed to let developers write and run applications that process huge amounts of data. While it could potentially improve a wide range of other software, the ecosystem supporting its implementation is still developing. Which is where Cloudera hopes to make a place for itself.



More on Hadoop: It uses the Google-introduced MapReduce systems framework that divides applications into small blocks of work, creating multiple replicas of data blocks that it places on various computer nodes.



It is already in use at large companies like Yahoo.
