Understanding MapReduce and Hadoop (Video)

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.
