Sun Grid Engine 6.2 U5 announced.

The fifth update release of the Sun Grid Engine 6.2 was announced today. The most interesting feature is the Hadoop integration but thats just my personal opinion:

Apache Hadoop support<br />
----------------------------------<br />
This feature allows users to efficiently run Hadoop Map-Reduce jobs in a SGE cluster. The SGE qmaster is made aware of HDFS data locality and of the data needs of jobs and will schedule the Hadoop jobs accordingly. After being assigned to a node by SGE, the actual processing of the job is handed over to the Hadoop framework.
