MapReduce and Hadoop power some of the most data-intensive applications. This video presentation explains how they work.

For those of you interested in just how cloud computing (and I do mean, computing) works, check out this video from a recent AWSome Atlanta Cloud Computing User's Group. Twitpay's Don Brown explains how open source applications MapReduce and Hadoop are used to process enormous amounts of data at Google and other large websites.
