Subject hosting recommandation for a small hadoop cluster?
Date Tue, 16 Feb 2010 08:28:30 GMT

do you know and would maybe like to recommend hosting providers which have 
hadoop-friendly offerings? I'm new to hadoop, but what I've read is:

- virtualization makes no sense and only costs
- no raid, hdfs does the replication
- 16GB+, 2CPU+

My cluster should be around 10 machines. Most likely I'd take another 5 for 
development. I do very much prefer dedicated machines and Debian since we're 
not familiar with Amazon or other cloud providers.

I'm currently thinking about rackspace and hetzner.

Thanks for your insights,
