Hadoop for Startups

Hi Folks, 

Although I attend HUGUK meetups in London sometimes I want to chat more about the practical issues that we face running Hadoop in the UK.

In particular I want to learn from people about using Hadoop in startups. 

Right now I am trying to come up with reasonable cost estimates and it is rather hard without the first hand experience. Does anyone have any costs they are willing to share?

I am thinking that Amazon S3/EMR is best for low initial outlay, but I appreciate it wont be the cheapest in the long term. 
But I am also trying to think about how many people will be needed - and what they will cost. It looks like I should be seeking a couple of good Java developers able to pick up Hadoop and Hive. 

Give me a shout if you want to chat in person, or in private. 

Maybe we can come up with enough information to present at a future HUGUK event.
