The Analytics Frontier of the Hadoop Eco-System

Ted Wilkie

“The Hadoop MapReduce framework grew out of an effort to make it easy to express and parallelize simple computations that were routinely performed at Google. It wasn’t long before libraries, like Apache Mahout, were developed to enable matrix factorization, clustering, regression, and other more complex analyses on Hadoop. Now, many of these libraries and their workloads are migrating to Apache Spark because it supports a wider class of applications than MapReduce and is more appropriate for iterative algorithms, interactive processing, and streaming applications.”
