Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with Christophe Bisciglia of Cloudera (http://www.cludera.com) and the Hadoop (http://hadoop.apache.org/) Project, a free version implementation of MapReduce and Google FS.
Christophe Bisciglia joins Cloudera from Google, where he created and managed their Academic Cloud Computing Initiative. Starting in 2007, he began working with the University of Washington to teach students
about Google's core data management and processing technologies - MapReduce and GFS. This quickly brought Hadoop into the curriculum, and has since resulted in an extensive partnership with the National
Science Foundation (NSF) which makes Google-hosted Hadoop clusters available for research and education worldwide. Beyond his work with Hadoop, he holds patents related to search quality and personalization, and spent a year working in Shanghai. Christophe earned his degree, and remains a visiting scientist, at the University of Washington.
