Apache Hadoop ecosystem - March 2013

Apache Hadoop ecosystem continues to evolve at a rapid pace with newer projects that are being added as incubators while those currently under incubation are getting ready to graduate out. Let’s visit the current state of open source Apache Hadoop ecosystem.

About the categorization:
(1)   Core Layers – this category comprises the core components which are required in part or as a whole to optimally leverage Apache Hadoop
(2)  Atmospheric Layers – this category comprises the additional components which provide advanced capabilities and insights for the composite use cases.

The nomenclature adopted for categories (core/atmospheric) and layers does not constitute official lingo and are being introduced to demarcate the basic use case versus advanced use cases of Apache Hadoop. As Hadoop distribution matures out along with technology stacks built up by organizations, we expect components and probably even layers to move around from one category to other.

Other open source projects/components like Cloudera Impala, Kerberos, Protocol Buffer etc. are not included in this ecosystem diagram since they are not Apache Software Foundation (ASF) projects.

Hadoop's 10 in LinkedIn's 10

LinkedIn, the pioneering professional social network has turned 10 years old. One of the hallmarks of its journey has been its technical accomplishments and significant contribution to open source, particularly in the last few years. Hadoop occupies a central place in its technical environment powering some of the most used features of desktop and mobile app. As LinkedIn enters the second decade of its existence, here is a look at 10 major projects and products powered by Hadoop in its data ecosystem.
1)      Voldemort:Arguably, the most famous export of LinkedIn engineering, Voldemort is a distributed key-value storage system. Named after an antagonist in Harry Potter series and influenced by Amazon’s Dynamo DB, the wizardry in this database extends to its self healing features. Available in HA configuration, its layered, pluggable architecture implementations are being used for both read and read-write use cases.
2)      Azkaban:A batch job scheduling system with a friendly UI, Azkab…

Data deduplication tactics with HDFS and MapReduce

As the amount of data continues to grow exponentially, there has been increased focus on stored data reduction methods. Data compression, single instance store and data deduplication are among the common techniques employed for stored data reduction.
Deduplication often refers to elimination of redundant subfiles (also known as chunks, blocks, or extents). Unlike compression, data is not changed and eliminates storage capacity for identical data. Data deduplication offers significant advantage in terms of reduction in storage, network bandwidth and promises increased scalability.
From a simplistic use case perspective, we can see application in removing duplicates in Call Detail Record (CDR) for a Telecom carrier. Similarly, we may apply the technique to optimize on network traffic carrying the same data packets.
Some of the common methods for data deduplication in storage architecture include hashing, binary comparison and delta differencing. In this post, we focus on how MapReduce and…

Top Big Data Influencers of 2015

2015 was an exciting year for big data and hadoop ecosystem. We saw hadoop becoming an essential part of data management strategy of almost all major enterprise organizations. There is cut throat competition among IT vendors now to help realize the vision of data hub, data lake and data warehouse with Hadoop and Spark.
As part of its annual assessment of big data and hadoop ecosystem, HadoopSphere publishes a list of top big data influencers each year. The list is derived based on a scientific methodology which involves assessing various parameters in each category of influencers. HadoopSphere Top Big Data Influencers list reflects the people, products, organizations and portals that exercised the most influence on big data and ecosystem in a particular year. The influencers have been listed in the following categories:
