You can run Hadoop on pretty much any hardware out there, as it makes very few assumptions about its environment. In this talk I present the modular and highly energy-efficient storage server which is currently being developed by the OpenStoragePod project.
I explain the motivations for basing our design on large numbers of 2.5" laptop disks, and discuss why you might want to consider using OpenStoragePod as the basis for building your (next) Hadoop cluster.
