Yahoo Sets Program to Boost Distributed Computing

Yahoo said on Monday it would launch an open source program for developing software for distributed computing, with Carnegie Mellon University as its first academic partner in the venture.

Yahoo has been a main supporter of Hadoop, an open source distributed file system that lets users process massive amounts of data. The company said it would make Hadoop available to academic research in a supercomputing-class data center.
