Nerd News: "Netflix shows off how it does Hadoop in the cloud"

This article http://gigaom.com/2013/01/10/netflix-shows-off-its-hadoop-architecture/
is referring to this Netflix blog post http://techblog.netflix.com/2013/01/hadoop-platform-as-service-in-cloud.html

The Gigaom author, Derrick Harris, has previously written about Netflix's data collection and analysis, see http://gigaom.com/2012/06/14/netflix-analyzes-a-lot-of-data-about-your-viewing-habits/

For those not familiar with Hadoop see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_Hadoop or http://hadoop.apache.org/

Should be of interest to Nerds that deal with data, especially large volumes of data.
