SIMR - Spark on top of Hadoop

Just learned from my collaborator Aapo Kyrola that the Spark team have now released a plugin which allows running Spark on top of Hadoop, without installation anything and without administrator privileges. This will probably encourage many more companies to try out Spark, which significantly improves on Hadoop performance.

Another related link, from my colleague Chris Dubois, shows that Cloudera is backing up  Spark.
