Hadoop from a Non Technical guy !

This is the post excerpt.

What is Hadoop

  • Apache Hadoop (pronunciation: /həˈduːp/) is an open-source software framework for distributed storage and distributed processing of very large data sets on computer clusters built from commodity hardware. (source:Wikipedia)
  • The core of Apache Hadoop consists of a storage part, known as Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), and a processing part called MapReduce.
  • The term Hadoop has come to refer not just to the basic modules, but also to the ecosystem, or collection of additional software packages that can be installed on top of or alongside Hadoop, such as Apache Pig, Apache Hive, Apache HBase, Apache Phoenix, Apache Spark, Apache ZooKeeper, Cloudera Impala, Apache Flume, Apache Sqoop, Apache Oozie, Apache Storm.
