Hadoop and the Big Data Problem Solution

Hadoop and the Big Data Problem Solution



What is Hadoop:

The Apache™ Hadoop is an open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing. The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.

 The Modules:

The project Hadoop includes few different  modules. First is Hadoop Common which is the common utilities that support the other Hadoop modules. Second one is a distributed file system( HDFS) that provides high-throughput access to application data. The third one is Hadoop YARN which is a framework for job scheduling and cluster resource management. And the last module is Hadoop MapReduce which is a YARN-based system for parallel processing of large data sets.

 Who is using it:

Hadoop is used widely by variety of companies and organizations for research and production. Rather paying for an expensive solutions, Hadoop is preferred because is free and  you can use it for parallel processing of huge amounts of data. It also can handle different types of data from disparate systems such as  structured, unstructured, log files, pictures, audio files, communications records, email– just about anything you can think of, regardless of its native format. Hadoop is very convenient because you don’t have to know how you intend to query your data before you store it, you can do I afterwards . With Hadoop all of your data becomes usable and you can see the relationship between that data. You can start make more efficient decisions and plans. The cost-effectiveness, scalability and streamlined architectures of Hadoop will make the technology more and more attractive. Most of you are already thinking how to implement Hadoop.
