> https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLUME/Index
> * HBase. An open-source, distributed, versioned, column-oriented store
> modeled after Google' Bigtable. http://hbase.apache.org/
> * Hive. A data warehouse infrastructure built on top of Apache Hadoop.
> http://hive.apache.org/
> * Oozie. An open-source workflow/coordination service to manage data
> processing jobs for Apache Hadoop. http://yahoo.github.com/oozie/
> * Pig. A platform for analyzing large data sets that consists of a
> high-level language for expressing data analysis programs, coupled with
> infrastructure for evaluating these programs. http://pig.apache.org/
> * Sqoop. A tool designed for efficiently transferring bulk data between
> Hadoop and structured datastores such as relational
> databases.https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SQOOP/Home
> * Whirr. A set of libraries for running cloud services.
> http://incubator.apache.org/whirr/
> * Zookeeper. An open-source server which enables highly reliable
> distributed coordination. http://zookeeper.apache.org/
> And on top of that, there is Bigtop which is a project for the

Good work! I'll probably be looking into these systems at some point and
it's nice to know they will be easily available on Mageia :D
