Hadoop Defined

Hadoop is a collection of open-source utilities that allows a business to create a network of several computers to solve problems that involve massive amounts of data and computations. This utility is great for processing and analyzing big data. Hadoop consists of a storage part, known as Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS), and a processing part which is a MapReduce programming model. It splits files into large blocks and distributes them across nodes in a cluster. These nodes then manipulate the data they have access to, a process referred to as data locality.
