The Hadoop Ecosystem: HDFS, Yarn, Hive, Pig, HBase and Growing

November 25, 2015

Hadoop is the leading open-source software framework developed for scalable, reliable and distributed computing. With the world producing data in the zettabyte range there is a growing need for cheap, scalable, reliable and fast computing to process and make sense of all of this data. The underlying technology for Hadoop framework was created by Google as there was no software in the market that fit Google needs. Indexing the web and analysing search patterns required deep and computationally extensive analytics that would help Google to improve their user behaviour algorithms.
