The subject line says it all: Hadoop:  Anyone got any experience with it 
on clusters (OK, so Google does, but that really wasn't the question, 
was it?).

We've a user who has requested its installation on one of our clusters, 
a high-throughput system.  I'm a bit concerned that it's not gonna be 
real compatible with, say, Torque/Maui and Gluster, unless we were to 
install Xen across the whole cluster and instantiate it within Xen VMs.

However, before I push all MY fears out into the discussion I'd prefer 
to see if anyone else has experience and can shed light on compatibility.

Thanks, Gerry
