Apache™ Hadoop® enables big data applications for both operations and analytics and is one of the fastest-growing technologies providing competitive advantage for businesses across the world
Considering next-generation data architecture, Hadoop is going to be a key component for such architecture.
Hadoop is an open-source framework that allows to store and process big data in a distributed environment 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.
It will provide a massively scalable distributed storage and processing platform. Hadoop enables businesses to build new data-driven applications while freeing up resources from existing systems. MapR is a production-ready distribution for Apache Hadoop.
