Yahoo!… announced an academic research partnership with Carnegie Mellon University that will give students access to Hadoop and other open source tools running in a supercomputing-class data center. The data center… is a 4,000-processor cluster supercomputer with 3 terabytes of memory and 1.5 petabytes of diskspace… CMU and Yahoo! also plan to hold a Hadoop Summit in the first half of 2008…

This is so cool. I just hope the summit will be out here in Silicon Valley rather than at CMU.

(For more background on Hadoop and its extensions, see my blog post here.)
