Are you looking to be on the cutting edge of Big Data? How would you like to test and refine your Hadoop application to see if it can handle the largest known cluster? Then you might be interested in what EMC’s Greenplum unit is doing in its Las Vegas data center, where anyone can make use of their facility for free. Yes, you read that correctly. It has been in operation for less than a year, and is already getting rave reviews from more than a dozen different customers from all over the world.
I interviewed several customers of the cluster for a recent story in ITworld here.
