Have any of you tried Hadoop? Can it be used without the distributed filesystem that goes with it, in a Share-nothing architecture? Would that make sense?

I'm also interested into any performance results you have...

Yes, you can use Hadoop on a local filesystem by using file URIs instead of hdfs URIs in various places. I think a lot of the examples that come with Hadoop do this.

This is probably fine if you just want to learn how Hadoop works and the basic map-reduce paradigm, but you will need multiple machines and a distributed filesystem to get the real benefits of the scalability inherent in the architecture.
