Hadoop is an open-source framework that stores and process big data in a distributed environment using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, while each offers local computation and storage. Hadoop divides a file into blocks and stores across a cluster of machines. It achieves fault tolerance by replicating the blocks on a cluster.
Hadoop can be used as a flexible and easy way for the distributed processing of large…Continue

Imagine the feelings of joy, sadness, fear, disgust and anger jostling with each other as she goes through the one of the biggest changes in her life, leaving her home.
