QxData Series – Cloudera | Hortonworks | MapR

Simplify and Accelerate Deployment of Apache Hadoop

Today, big data tends to be widely distributed and largely unstructured. Hadoop, the core technology of big data analytics, works by breaking data into pieces and assigning each “piece” to a specific cluster node for analysis. Apache Hadoop is an open-source solution framework that supports data-intensive distributed applications on large clusters of industrial standard hardware.
