Funny that the OP asks about 'real time'...
This comes up quiet often and its always misunderstood.
First, when we say 'real time' many take it to mean subjective real time. Real 'real time' would require some sort of RTOS underneath.
Second Hadoop is a parallelized framework. You have several components that make up Hadoop. A distributed scheduler, a distributed disk and tools to manipulate the data.
You can use Hadoop in subjective real time scenarios.
One common pattern is to use M/R to process the data, and HBase to deliver ad-hoc access to records returning a result in sub second response time.
I think that there's an upcoming talk at Strata in NY on using Hadoop, (HBase and SOLR) to provide real time access.
Out side of that, yeah Tom White's book is a great start, however, some of the feedback I've heard it that its a dry read.
But then again, most technical books are. :-)
