February PLUG Meeting: Intro to Hadoop

Date: February 9th, 2011
Time: 7:30 PM
Location: Adobe, Omniture Business Unit

This is the rescheduled Hadoop meeting, as promised.

Hadoop is an open-source MapReduce framework inspired by Google’s
MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers. It’s used to process
“Big Data” (petabytes) by distributing work across tens, hundreds, or
thousands of nodes in a cluster. Hadoop is used by Google, eBay,
Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Adobe, StumbleUpon, LinkedIn, Intel, Tynt,
and many other notable shops with Big Data processing requirements.
