Leveraging big data to gain a competitive advantage across a range of industries

In their efforts to extract value from big data, organizations around the world are turning to the Hadoop big data collection, management and analysis platform. Hadoop offers two important services: store any kind of data from any source, inexpensively and at very large scale, and perform sophisticated analysis of that data easily and quickly.

RedPoint Data Management for Hadoop

Hadoop is an open-source software framework for storage and processing of large data sets on clusters of inexpensive hardware. Hadoop was created by Doug Cutting and Mike Cafarella and adopted by Apache, and is supported by a global community of contributors and users. Part of Hadoop’s appeal is that it offers a means of storing and processing very large amounts of data more cost-effectively than traditional databases or data warehouses.

How to Use Hadoop as a Piece of the Big Data Puzzle

Organizations are embracing Hadoop for several notable merits:

• Hadoop is distributed. Bringing a high-tech twist to the adage, “Many hands make light work,” data is stored on local disks of a distributed cluster of servers.
• Hadoop runs on commodity hardware. Based on the average cost per terabyte of compute capacity of a prepackaged system, Hadoop is easily 10 times cheaper for comparable computing capacity compared to higher-cost specialized hardware.
• Hadoop is fault-tolerant. Hardware failure is expected and is mitigated by data replication and speculative processing. If capacity is available, Hadoop runs multiple copies of the same task, accepting the results from the task that finishes first. To learn more read this white paper.

How YARN Opens Doors to Easier Programming Tools for Hadoop 2.0 Users

The emergence of YARN for the Hadoop 2.0 platform has opened the door to new tools and applications that promise to allow more companies to reap the benefits of big data in ways never before possible with outcomes possibly never imagined. By separating the problem of cluster resource management from the data processing function, YARN offers a world beyond MapReduce: less encumbered by complex programming protocols, faster, and at a lower cost.
