As data from the web exploded and grew faster and beyond the capacity of traditional systems to control it. There was a need for a software project which can handle the increased amount of data with smooth processing and storage systems. This is how Hadoop came into play.
Apache Hadoop is a software that allows divided processing of a large data collections across clusters of commodity servers. It is designed to operate from a single server to thousands of machines. It has a very strong degree of fault resistance. Instead of relying on high-end hardware, the resiliency of these clusters comes from the software’s ability to detect and handle failures at the application layer.
Hadoop can take control of all sorts of data sets whether they are pictures, log files, emails, structured or non-structured. Data may include anything we can think of, in any format.
To brief it up, Hadoop is a software system which has distinct features which makes it the best data handling project. It is scalable since new nodes can be incorporated as required without changing data formats, it is fault resistant, it is cost effective, and it is flexible which means it can absorb any type of data. It is a completely open source and portable system.
