Subject Can Hadoop run on Virtual Machines in Solaris
Date Fri, 11 Dec 2009 17:37:58 GMT

We are thinking of alternate technolgies for our ETL process to Datawrehouse. I was interested
in Hadoop. But had a question. Is it possible to build a Hadoop cluster on virtual machines
in the same physical box. Has anyone in the group implemented Hadoop on VM's. Please advise.

The next step would be to go to the Hadoop web page and work through
the tutorial. Also look at the examples that come with the Hadoop
