In recent years, several frameworks have been developed for processing very large quantities of data on large clusters of commodity PCs. These frameworks have focused on fault-tolerance and scalability. However, when using heterogeneous environments these systems do not offer optimal workload balancing. In this paper we present Jumbo, a distributed computation platform designed to explore possible solutions to this issue.
