Hadoop becomes critical cog in the big data machine

As more and more companies use Hadoop to handle big data, anticipation for forthcoming Version 2.0 grows

By , InfoWorld |  Big Data, Hadoop

Hadoop 2.0 focuses on scale and innovation, with Yarn (next-generation MapReduce) and federation capabilities. Yarn will let users add their own compute models so that they do not have to stick to MapReduce. "We're really looking forward to the community inventing many new ways of using Hadoop," Baldeschwieler says. Expected uses include real-time applications and machine-learning algorithms. Scalable, pluggable storage is planned also.

Always-on capabilities in Version 2.0 will enable clusters with no downtime. Scalable storage is planned as well. General availability of Hadoop 2.0 is expected within a year.
