Hadoop Course summary

The Apache™ Hadoop® project is an open-source software project that develops reliable, scalable, distributed computing. The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework. It provides fast and secure storage and retrieval of large data sets. It applies distributed processing of large data sets. The data sets are saved and distributed across clusters of computers using very simple programming models. This technology is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage.
