Today, at CommunityOne East, Sun will announce more of its Cloud Initiative so it is appropriate to highlight Kohsuke's recent announcement on Hadoop, the Java-based Apache project that provides a framework for distributed data-intensive computation (Website, Wikipedia, NYTimes article).
In a nutshell, Kohsuke has added a new Hudson Plugin that can turn a Hudson cluster into a Hadoop cluster. Hudson is very easy to install and provisioning and Kohsuke is considering several extensions already, so this seems an interesting direction. Details at KK's writeup.
