The Apache Hadoop project develops
open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. If you’re looking for guidance on
deploying a Hadoop cluster on Windows
Azure, then be sure to check out the latest blog post, “Hadoop

create a typical cluster with a Name Node, a Job Tracker and a customizable
number of Slaves. He also outlines how to dynamically change the number of
Slaves using the Windows Azure Management Portal.
