Hadoop: Open Insight Anywhere
The Apache™ Hadoop® project develops open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing.
The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage.
Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.
Hadoop’s scalable architecture and inexpensive storage costs make it ideal to implement a data lake, a repository for all your raw data. This allows you to store massive amounts data for any future use and speeds the process of adding new data sources to your corporate data (compared to a traditional ETL process for a data warehouse).
Data science requires experience and knowledge in math, statistics, machine learning, programming and scripting, and visualization techniques. IBM BigInsights for Apache Hadoop delivers key capabilities to accelerate the time to value for a data science team, which includes business analysts, data architects, and data scientists.
