1. In "apache hadoop goes realtime at facebook", Dhruba and others
discuss their use of alternate block placement policies.

2. Russ perry did some work on rasterization of PDF files in Hadoop
where the final stage -collecting the output and streaming to the
printer- was done on a machine next to the printer. He modified
DFSClient to provide all the location data on all blocks, and had his
app pick blocks off different machines to keep the net busy, avoid
overloading any specific machine with disk IO requests, and to ensure
peak bandwidth between the final destination machine
