An Apache project, Hadoop is being built and used by a community of contributors from all over the world. Yahoo! has been the largest contributor to the project and uses Hadoop extensively in its web search and advertising businesses.

Adding to Hadoop knowledge around the world, Vineet Tyagi, Sr. Director of Engineering and R&D at Impetus, will be talking about Hadoop in the Cloud at Cloud Expo.

As he puts it, "Data accumulation rates are growing astronomically and managing data in traditional ways is getting difficult in the same proportion. Hadoop is emerging as a champion in large-scale data management needs; however, it requires a lot of IT infrastructure investment & expertise.

Cloud-based Hadoop deployments offer multi-fold efficiencies and benefits. Hadoop in the cloud provides on-demand computing, operational scalability, efficiency, cost etc, local access to large data."
