Ridiculously Easy Distributed Computing
by Mike Loukides
Lucas Carlson (author of the Ruby Cookbook) has been doing some great stuff. Check out starfish. It's a simple, easy-to-use, implementation of Google's MapReduce for Ruby. It's available as a Gem, so just gem install starfish and you're ready.
Wow...Starfish does look very cool. Now all I need is a project to use it on.
nice pointer to a great looking tool. I think I need to spend some time with it and lots of log files.
|That is a killer piece of software! I love it.|
