    hardware that successfully utilized at biggest IT firms in the world Google Yahoo Facebook just to name the few or they just re implementing DFS MapReduce themselves More February 22 2010 What is Hadoop from Interview with Amr Awadallah Cloudera CTO First it s worth making the important clarifying point that Hadoop is not a database Hadoop is a data processing system and in fact I would even go as far as saying Hadoop is an operating system The core of an operating system boils down to a file system the storage of files and a process scheduling system that runs applications on top of these files There are many other components that help with devices credentials and user access and so on but that is the core Hadoop is exactly the same thing The core of Hadoop is the Hadoop Distributed File System which is a file system that s runs across many nodes It links together the file systems on many local nodes to make them into one big file system Hadoop MapReduce is really the job scheduling system that takes care of scheduling jobs on top of all those nodes That is the key distinction between Hadoop s approach and that of database systems Hadoop at its heart does not require any structure to your data You can just upload files directly from anywhere like a web server RFID device or cell phone mobile device directly into Hadoop They could be images videos or just a bunch of bits They don t have to have a schema with column types and so on which gives you tremendous agility and flexibility Hadoop has a very nice model that I sometimes refer to as schema on read Whereas defining your schema as you re writing the data in limits what you can put in by requiring it to be conformant to the schema that you created Hadoop allows you to define the schema as you re reading stuff out That gives you a lot of flexibility and agility since you can add files that have dynamic parts like JSON or new standards coming up like Avro which is a very good project coming out of the Hadoop project that s similar to protocol buffers from Google and Thrift from Facebook Avro makes files have a schema around them as well but these schemas are semi structured rather than conforming to a strict relational model That said it s also important to point out that structured stuff is a subset of unstructured stuff The fact that Hadoop at its heart is a file system doesn t mean that it can t do database relational stuff It does actually in the same way that Windows at its heart is a file system but you can run SQL Server on top of it to get the relational services schemas column types and so on One of the key projects on top of Hadoop is Hive which actually came out of Facebook Hive
