Run Hadoop with IBM BigInsights Basic on Amazon EC2 and Rackspace

Hadoop is a framework for querying large data sets across clusters of computers. BigInsights Basic is IBM's free distribution of Hadoop. It works great in cloud environments where you can quickly provision and deprovision clusters of machines.

We've recently put out RightScale templates that make it easy to deploy BigInsights Basic on Amazon EC2 and Rackspace clouds. A template is something that specifies a base operating system image, defines software to install, and takes your configuration parameters.
