Building Hadoop on Top of Nexentastor, a Pragmatic Tour of the Process- Nexenta

As open source software that helps process and manage large unstructured data sets across clusters of servers, Hadoop carries out data processing across a number of machines that sit in a cluster, speeding up large computations and hiding I/O latency through increased concurrency. Assigning key value pairs to all of the data, Hadoop is based on MapReduce and HDFS and it is changing the dynamics of large scale computing or Big Data.

Hadoop can scale from one single server to thousands of machines, with a very high degree of fault tolerance. Rather than relying on high-end hardware, the resiliency of these clusters comes from the software’s ability to detect and handle failures at the application layer. It is used by Yahoo, eBay, LinkedIn,Facebook, and many more.  

Hadoop especially is well-suited to large data processing tasks (like searching and indexing) because it can leverage its distributed file system to cheaply and reliably replicated chunks of data to nodes in the cluster, making data available locally on the machine that is processing it.

This session will be a pragmatic tour of the process for Building Hadoop on top of NexentaStor
