An extensive post about Hadoop best practices and anti-patterns from Yahoo!:
This blog post represents compendium of best practices for applications running on Apache Hadoop. In fact, we introduce the notion of aGrid Pattern which, similar to a Design Pattern, represents a general reusable solution for applications running on the Grid.
This blog post enumerates characteristics of well behaved applications and provides guidance on appropriate uses of various features and capabilities of the Hadoop framework.
This blog is called myNoSQL and it is written by me, Alex Popescu, a software architect with a passion for open source and communities.
It records my readings, learnings, and opinions on NoSQL databases, polyglot persistence, and distributed systems -- subjects that I'm passionate about.
The opinions expressed here are my own, and no other party necessarily agrees with them.
If you feel I'm biased, I probably am.
