Well, if we're talking map/reduce (google) today, we should probably  
talk about Michael Shatz's CloudBurst (RMAP) being rolled by Amazon  
Web Services as a service, available as a pre-configured job type in  
its new ElasticMapReduce service.

I just ran the example search on 10 medium EC2 instances in 7 minutes  
for $2.  Launched the job in 15 seconds.  I played with the same thing  
on my own using EC2 and Hadoop on Monday and it took me hours to get  
it working.

Major development.
