So it’s almost a month since we made the beta version of Mastodon C which won the AMEE London Green Hackathon 2012, and seems like the excitement just keeps building. We are incredibly excited about the potential of our project  – we really could make cloud computing significantly greener with this.

We entered the Digital London Challenge to get some early funding and support. If you like us then please vote vote vote!

We’ve also been getting fantastic comments and support from some especially grand people.

James Governor, of RedMonk said:

Mastodon C is arguably the most important project in IT today – energy efficiency for hadoop, the future of data

The London Green Hackathon judges said:

Mastodon looks to the future of distributed computing, and is a great example of web-meets-cleantech.

And, my personal favourite quote, from @mrchrisadams:

Herds of intelligent roaming hadoop jobs, migrating from datacentre to datacentre, in search of cold iron in a Gibsonian future.
