Hadoop anyone?

Hello. I'm a little surprised there aren't any threads yet pertaining to Hadoop. Maybe I'm missing something. Has anyone tested any Hadoop installations yet on Digital Ocean droplets? Thanks, Troy

@troy, I believe that the recent release of private networks have a great deal in that. As making hadoop work over the internet would be very inefficient. I believe that now we might see all sorts of new products being built with Digital Ocean
Last night I got a Cloudera Hadoop instance running on 4 droplets:

I'm using DigitalOcean to test my Hadoop Ansible Playbook:
