At the Hadoop Summit in Silicon Valley today, Yahoo (s yhoo) announced the availability of the Yahoo Distribution of Hadoop, a source-only version of Apache Hadoop that Yahoo uses within its own search engine.

That’s more good news for Cloudera, a Burlingame, Calif-based startup that builds commercial services around Hadoop. We reported last week that the company’s distribution has been gaining a lot of traction lately and received $6 million in Series B funding.

Jeff Hammerbacher, Cloudera chief scientist, and Raj Patel, Yahoo vice president of networks, systems and storage engineering, will be at GigaOM’s upcoming Structure 09 conference.
