Dell announces the open sourcing of multiple Hadoop Barclamps

Today, my team at Dell is very excited to announce that we have released several barclamps into the opensource community.

These barclamps are designed and build to enable Hadoop environments to be rapidly deployed using Dell Crowbar.

The barclamps can be found on github, along with the project wiki including build information, FAQs and other important links.

Folks on my team also created a variety of videos to help you get started in building Crowbar and setting up Hadoop environments using Crowbar:
We encourage you to download these barclamps, test them in your environment, and join the crowbar@dell.com community.

InformationWeek Hadoop Webinar

Last week I spoke at a webinar hosted by Information Week. The topic was deployment of Hadoop in your computing environments. I spoke about how Dell defines Big Data, what types of problems can be solved with a Hadoop solution and the components that Dell includes as part of the Hadoop solution.

The MP4 from the Webinar can be downloaded from here.
