It might be very basic question.

Can I integrate QGIS +Hadoop cloud?

Currently I am going through similar question and few research articles & researching on my side.

In upcoming ArcGIS 10.2 ESRI announced that there will be cloud extension in ArcGIS. So similarly can I integrate open source desktop gis (like QGIS) with hadoop cloud?

Purpose : Analyze the social networking trend.

Any help/suggestion will be great !!

thanks in advance : )

There are other options that you could use for doing large scale cloud processing. I would suggest you take a look at Geotrellis from Azavea. It has a strong code base and builds on several other products to support scaling and distribution.
