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.

Jaspersoft releases the 2nd version of JasperReports Server connector for MongoDB which “solves a key challenge in providing insight from Big Data systems with terabytes or even petabytes of data. Jaspersoft’s intelligent connector integrates 10gen’s NoSQL platform with the full Jaspersoft BI Suite, providing flexible and affordable reporting, ad hoc analysis, and dashboarding of MongoDB data.” [PR announcement]
Joyent announces SmartMachine appliance for MongoDB [PR announcement ]:
- Instant capacity bursting of up to 800%.
- On the fly MongoDB resizing with no reboot
- 100% data integrity through the use of the ZFS file system, which provides default copy-on-write snapshotting
- Joyent Cloud Analytics with DTrace for point-and-click root cause analysis of latencies
- Security through the use of Zones, which protect vCPUs from other cloud users
To get a better picture of why the Joyent appliance is interesting check the fantastic results of this Riak benchmark on Joyent SmartMachines and the technical details of the benchmark.

I usually don’t trust vendor benchmarks, but these Riak benchmarks look pretty much inline with Mozilla’s Riak benchmark. What is even more impressive is that these results were from running Riak on virtualized machines (the Joyent SmartMachines).
