Hadoop is open-source software that enables reliable, scalable, distributed computing on clusters of inexpensive servers. It is reliable and fault tolerant. It expects and handles hardware and software failures. Hadoop is also scalable-designed for massive scale of processors, memory, and local attached storage. And finally, Hadoop offers massively parallel programming model, MapReduce. Hadoop is designed to process terabytes and even petabytes of unstructured and structured data. It breaks large workloads into smaller data blocks that are distributed across a cluster of commodity hardware for faster processing. IPC Global is certified in Hadoop and currently integrates and implements Hadoop with the best-in-class BI Platform, Qlik, delivering inProcess-your Big Data Factory.
