Tom White – Running Hadoop in the Cloud

Tom White, Cloudera engineer, Hadoop committer, and author of Hadoop the Definitive Guide, from O’Reilly and Yahoo! Press, talks about running Hadoop in EC2.

He opens with a discussion of the Berkeley RAD Lab paper on cloud computing and walks us through a set of definitions to a discussion of the public cloud. He sees a realm of interesting possibilities: an apparently infinite resource; the elimination of user commitment; and the pay-as you go model, which enables elasticity. Tom describes the implementation of Hadoop in this landscape.
