Comments about oreilly Learning Apache Hadoop:

I bought this product from Infinite Skills back before they became part of O'Reilly

This course-- and Rick Morrow's one on AWS--are hands down some of the best video lectures I've seen for anything.

You can start with essentially 0 knowledge of what Hadoop is and come out the other side with a really solid set of fundamentals. He gets into a lot of the nitty-gritty of how HDFS stores data and how Map Reduce jobs handle it.

He also touches briefly on some of the other MR type tools in the Hadoop ecosystem like Hive and Pig.

10/10 would recommend.
