Its not new feature, its extension of existing resource scheduling which 
works good enough only for RAM. There are 2 other resources - CPU cores 
and network IO which needs to be considered.

We have job which is doing lot of network IO in mapper and its desirable 
to run mappers on different nodes even if reading blocks from HDFS will 
not be local.

Our second job is burning all CPU cores on machine while doing 
computations, its important for mappers not to land on same node.
