I wanted to see if anyone has any suggestions on Hadoop learning material (book or tutorials) or any other technology.
I am proficient in C++, C# and SQL.  However, I am starting to deal with data sets that are in the billions.  In reality, it is possible to make SQL work with the proper hardware for a single user.  However, if I want to use this for multiple users at once, I believe that I have grown out of SQL.
I understand that Hadoop is not a normalize database like SQL.
I would appreciate any suggestions on technology that is intended for large datasets.

I was actually asking exactly that question not too long ago.  I started here:

I, too, am extremely proficient with SQL Server.  On one hand, I believe it can be used effectively for much larger volumes than most understand.  On the other, I believe that is not out of the box SQL Server use.  Rather, it is the result of very clever and very extreme engineering, using horizontal partitioning and then some.  But, I speak very biased, from my own hands-on experience.  

Having said that, I understand what you mean by 'grown out of SQL'.  Take a look at those two references above.  Hopefully you will gain from them as I did.
