re: Hadoop 2.0: New Big Data Possibilities
I had questions about the timing of Hadoop 2.0 and YARN, but the response from Arun Murthy came in too late for publication. It's the beta version that will be announced within a matter of days. When will it reach GA? The short answer is the second half of 2013 and into 2014, but here's a Murthy's statement with more detail:

"Apache Hadoop 2.0 and YARN have been under development for 2.5 to 3 years, will be reaching final Beta shortly, with a push to final stable release within the Apache community a matter of weeks after that. At that point, MapReduce (batch data processing) and Apache Tez (interactive data processing) will be two application types that are fully tested to run on YARN. Community projects such as S4, Storm, Giraph, OpenMPI and other open source projects have been doing work to be first-class YARN applications as well, so they will now have a stable platform release to test against and finish their efforts. Commercial vendors and startups have also been doing work around YARN. For example, Continuuity is a startup that created an open source framework called Weave that makes it easy to create YARN applications.

Bottom-line: the next wave of innovation on top of YARN has been underway for a while. How long will it take for the market to adopt Hadoop 2.0?GǪ Initial uptake of Hadoop 2.0 based solutions with YARN will start in the second half of 2013 with broader market adoption happening throughout 2014."
