I don’t know how many are going to deploy Hadoop on Microsoft Azure, but at least we know it is possible:
Is it possible to deploy a Hadoop cluster in Azure? It sure is and setting one up is not difficult, here’s how you do it.
The Azure deployment is set to use 1 large VM for the Name Node, 1 large VM for the Job Tracker and 4 Extra Large nodes as Slaves. If you are ok with that configuration skip to the next step.
