You can now run HADOOP jobs on the High Performance Computing system.  This means that HADOOP tasks written in JAVA can be submitted to our MOAB scheduler, just as you would submit any other job.

HADOOP is an increasingly popular framework for large-scale processing of data-sets using the map/reduce algorithm.  HADOOP is particularly suited for "embarrassingly parallel" shared-nothing processing of unstructured data.

We encourage anyone interested in experimenting with HADOOP or using it for research applications to try out our implementation.
