Cloudera annouced that they would offer support for Apache Hadoop on their website. Apache Hadoop is inspired by the Google technologies MapReduce and Google Filesystem. Nice detail: Hadoop is named after the stuffed elephant of one of the engineers kid.
Michael Olson is stated as the current CEO of Cloudera. He formly worked for Sleepycat who created Berkeley DB. They where later bought by Oracle. Nevertheless the idea to bring enterprise support to Hadoop sounds nice.
