Yes, Cloud MapReduce is an alternate implementation of MapReduce. The
difference between Cloud MapReduce and Hadoop is that Cloud MapReduce
depends upon the infrastructure services provided by Amazon (e.g.,
AMIs, S3, SQS and SimpleDB) instead of providing it's own
implementation of each.

On a side note, I find it interesting that Amazon is now offering a
product based on Hadoop named Amazon Elastic MapReduce:


perl -e 'print unpack("u30","D0G)U8V4\@4VYY9&5R\"F)R=6-E+G-N>61E<D\!G;6%I;\"YC;VT*"
