Big names unleash 1,000-node Hadoop stampede

Coming of age for twee cartoon elephant?

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Hadoop, the distributed big-data processing system named after a toy elephant, now has a group of suppliers behind it. The tech giants are collectively aiming to develop the popular big data beast with a 1,000 node cluster – dubbed the Analytics Workbench – as a laboratory.

EMC's Greenplum, Intel, Mellanox Technologies, Micron, Seagate, SuperMicro, Switch, VMware and others have collaborated to set up a 1,000 node cluster to develop Hadoop. Its purpose is to "act as an environment for running scale validation of the Apache Hadoop code base".

Greenplum says:

[We are] actively working with the Apache Software Foundation to ensure that all results from the Analytics Workbench are available to the open source community in an effort to leverage the resources of the Analytics Workbench to further accelerate the development of Hadoop as a revolutionary technology for Big Data.
