Introduction to Hadoop
Apache Hadoop is a Java software framework that supports data-intensive distributed applications under a free license. It enables applications to work with thousands of nodes and petabytes of data. Hadoop was inspired by Google's MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers.
Hadoop is a top-level Apache project, being built and used by a community of contributors from all over the world. Yahoo! has been the largest contributor to the project and uses Hadoop extensively in its web search and advertising businesses. IBM and Google have announced a major initiative to use Hadoop to support university courses in distributed computer programming.
In this introduction, we'll discuss the architecture and major components of Hadoop and work through some basic demonstrations.
