Hadoop is a software framework for storing data and running applications on clusters.
Hadoop is a software framework for storing data and running applications on clusters of commodity hardware. Hadoop solves big data problems and can be considered as a suite which encompasses a number of services (ingesting, storing, analyzing and maintaining) inside it. A Java-based framework, Hadoop is extremely popular for handling and analyzing large sets of data. It delivers massive storage for any kind of data, huge processing power and the ability to handle virtually limitless coexisting jobs or tasks.
Niles Partners is launching a product which will configure and publish Hadoop eco-system which is embedded pre-configured tool with Ubuntu 16.04 and ready-to-launch VM on Azure that contains Hadoop, HDFS, Hbase, drill, mahout,pig,hive ,etc.
Hadoop saves the user from having to acquire additional hardware for a traditional database system to process data. It also reduces the effort and time required to load the data into another system as you can process it directly within Hadoop.
Importance of Hadoop
Capacity to store and process great amounts of any kind of data, quickly.
It's a distributed computing model processes big data fast.
Application and Data processing are protected against hardware failure.
It is flexible, unlike traditional relational databases. With Hadoop, you don’t have to preprocess data before storing it.
You can easily develop your system to handle more data simply by adding nodes.
