The MQP presented in this document was completed at eBay in San Jose, CA between January and March 2009. eBay Research Labs was using Hadoop to process their log data, and hoped for an easy way to increase their processing speed. To accomplish this, we developed and tested a program to allow users to quickly connect and configure their Windows computers as nodes on eBay's existing Hadoop cluster. Additionally, we created an installer to handle the many prerequisites associated with Hadoop on Windows.
