Interesting news on the massively-parallelizable software front. The Hadoop project at Yahoo, after showing great results over the past year, has launched a blog today. Hadoop is open-source, and enables grid computation through a Map-Reduce implementation and a large distributed file system. It's written in Java but any client language can interact with it. And I guess it plays well with EC2. If you have a petabyte to crunch you probably already know about it... if you might have one next year, check out their blog.Read more of this story (http://developers.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/11/15/0039200&from=rss) at Slashdot.
