Besides the well established Amazon Elastic MapReduce and Windows Azure HDInsight, there are two new Hadoop-in-the-cloud services:
- Skytap which offers Cloudera CDH4 Enterprise experimentation clusters up to 50 nodes
- Joyent Solution for Hadoop which is offered in partnership with Hortonworks. I hesitated for a bit to mention Joyent considering the page says “Sign up now to talk to a Joyent Solutions Architect” which is anything but a cloud service.
