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.

Under the terms of the joint development and licensing agreement, the two companies will deliver open standards-based reference architectures that simplify management and accelerate deployment of Hadoop Cluster environments. Clients can purchase the Cloudera Enterprise platform and future Cloudera products either directly from HP or bundled in HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop.
The new HP reference architecture for Apache Hadoop for Cloudera and HP AppSystem for Apache Hadoop—Cloudera are based on HP Converged Infrastructure. They include the Cloudera Enterprise platform and HP Insight Cluster Manager Utility (CMU) software.

A couple of links covering various aspects of this question:

- MapR claims title as de facto standard for Hadoop
If you have other good references answering the question of what Hadoop distribution to choose please leave a comment.

Found the following bits in a post on The Register by Timothy Prickett Morgan:
While Cloudera and MapR are charging $4,000 per node for their enterprise-class Hadoop distributions (including their proprietary extensions and tech support), Hortonworks doesn’t have any proprietary extensions and is living off of the support contracts for the HDP 1.0 stack. […] Hortonworks is not providing its full list price, but for a starter ten-node cluster, you can get a standard support contract for $12,000 per year.
Hortonworks’s pricing looks a bit aggressive, but this could be explained by the fact that Hortonworks Data Platform 1.0 was made available only this week.
For running Hadoop in the cloud, there’s also Amazon Elastic MapReduce whose pricing was always clear. And Amazon has recently announced support for MapR Hadoop distribution on Elastic MapReduce.
