Hadoop is an open-source project administered by the Apache Software Foundation. Hadoop’s contributors work for some of the world’s biggest technology companies. That diverse, motivated community has produced a genuinely innovative platform for consolidating, combining and understanding large-scale data in order to better comprehend the data deluge.
Enterprises today collect and generate more data than ever before. Relational and data warehouse products excel at OLAP and OLTP workloads over structured data. Hadoop, however, was designed to solve a different problem: the fast, reliable analysis of both structured data and complex data. As a result, many enterprises deploy Hadoop alongside their legacy IT systems, which allows them to combine old data and new data sets in powerful new ways.
Technically, Hadoop consists of two key services: reliable data storage using the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and high-performance parallel data processing using a technique called MapReduce.
