Karmasphere is one of those cool apps / companies / projects that will be making waves before long. They are making the usage of clusters / Hadoop easier.

They have a free beta that you can play with that makes creating and managing Hadoop Batch jobs dead simple. This space is filling up fast and someone is going to gain market share... these guys have a pretty good shot at becoming the defacto standard because they are standing on the shoulders of the NetBeans giant.

That means that all of the NetBeans croud already has a head start and just need to learn the specifics of Hadoop instead of learning a new user interface AND Hadoop at the same time.
