Hadoop and Cloud is an almost perfect marriage. Hadoop is a distributed computing framework that leverages a cluster built on commodity hardware. The Cloud simplifies provisioning of machines and software. Getting started with Hadoop on the Cloud makes it simple to provision your environment quickly and actually get started using Hadoop.
