Hadoop is a free, Java-based programming framework that supports the processing of large data sets in a distributed computing environment. It is part of the Apache project sponsored by the Apache Software Foundation. Hadoop makes it possible to run applications on systems with thousands of nodes involving thousands of terabytes. Its distributed file system facilitates rapid data transfer rates among nodes and allows the system to continue operating uninterrupted in case of a node failure. This approach lowers the risk of catastrophic system failure, even if a significant number of nodes become inoperative.
Why use the Bitnami Hadoop Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run Hadoop in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Hadoop Stack is:
We track every release of Hadoop and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Hadoop as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Hadoop or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Hadoop Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.
Nobody has written a review of Bitnami Hadoop yet, why not be the first?
