Hadoop/MapReduce, the open source project that allows organizations
to process, store and analyze massive application datasets. Hadoop,
which some are calling the killer app for the cloud, already serves
as the data processing engine behind some of the world’s largest
and most popular Internet businesses including Google, Yahoo! and
Facebook. Bisciglia and White will cover the most frequently asked
questions about Hadoop / MapReduce as well as tips to designing,
deploying, and maintaining a Hadoop cluster.

Christophe Bisciglia joined Cloudera from Google, where he created
and managed their Academic Cloud Computing Initiative. Starting in
2007, he began working with the University of Washington to teach
students about Google’s core data management and processing
technologies – MapReduce and GFS. This quickly brought Hadoop into
the curriculum, and has since resulted in an extensive partnership
with the National Science Foundation (NSF) which makes
Google-hosted Hadoop clusters available for research and education
worldwide. Beyond his work with Hadoop, he holds patents related to
search quality and personalization, and spent a year working in
Shanghai. Christophe earned his degree, and remains a visiting
scientist, at the University of Washington.

Tom White has been an Apache Hadoop committer since February
2007, and is a member of the Apache Software Foundation. He works
for Cloudera, a company set up to offer Hadoop support and
training. Previously he was as an independent Hadoop consultant,
working with companies to set up, use, and extend Hadoop. He has
written numerous articles for O’Reilly, java.net and IBM’s
developerWorks, and has spoken at several conferences, including at
ApacheCon 2008 on Hadoop. Tom has a Bachelor’s degree in
Mathematics from the University of Cambridge and a Master’s in
Philosophy of Science from the University of Leeds, UK.
