That's per core, but these stats have all been surpassed with the latest hardware.

re: Hadoop Spurs Big Data Revolution
Reading through the whole document I see only one mention of Yahoo, and no mention of Yahoo as the originator of Hadoop. It sometimes appears that the Press is intent on highlighting all of Yahoo's weaknesses, and none of it's strengths. Perhaps you think this information is already well-known, but the pie-chart showing that 74% have "no current or planned use" would suggest otherwise. For those who wish to read more meaty detail, see http://developer.yahoo.com/had....

Not everyone believes in the Hype of Hadoop. See http://www.vertica.com/2011/09... The big organizations mentioned here can afford to use non optimal solutions. I have seen no benchmark showing Hadoop beating say Oracle. My own noSQL database beats Hadoop by a large margin using $330 PC verses $1 million (or so) used by Hadoop for the same benchmark. See http://www.velocitydb.com/Comp...

I will continue following the Hype of Hadoop and if there really is some substance behind it then I look forward to a .NET version of the distribution mechanism.

128 MB of RAM for 16 cores? That has to be typo.
