The Heart of Big Data Analytics

Hadoop is an open-source software framework that’s synonymous with big data storage and analysis. The system’s ability to store and process a wide range of data makes it ideal for supporting advanced analytics, such as predictive analytics, data mining, and machine learning. Hadoop consists of four modules, each designed to perform specialized tasks for big data analytics. The Distributed File System allows fast data access across a large number of storage devices, while MapReduce enables efficient data set conversions. With Hadoop Common, different computer operating systems can retry data stored in Hadoop. Finally, YARN takes care of allocating system resources.
