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.

In-memory data model with Apache Gora

Open source in-memory data model and persistence for big data framework Apache Gora™ version 0.3, was released in May 2013. The 0.3 release offers significant improvements and changes to a number of modules including a number of bug fixes. However, what may be of significant interest to the DynamoDB community will be the addition of a gora-dynamodb datastore for mapping and persisting objects to Amazon's DynamoDB. Additionally the release includes various improvements to the gora-core and gora-cassandra modules as well as a new Web Services API implementation which enables users to extend Gora to any cloud storage platform of their choice. This 2-part post provides commentary on all of the above and a whole lot more, expanding to cover where Gora fits in within the NoSQL and Big Data space, the development challenges and features which have been baked into Gora 0.3 and finally what we have on the road map for the 0.4 development drive.

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…

Amazon DynamoDB datastore for Gora

What was initially suggested during causal conversation at ApacheCon2011 in November 2011 as a “neat idea”, would soon become prime ground for Gora's first taste of participation within Google's Summer of Code program. Initially, the project, titled Amazon DynamoDB datastore for Gora, merely aimed to extend the Gora framework to Amazon DynamoDB. However, it seem became obvious that the issue would include much more than that simple vision.

The Gora 0.3 Toolbox We briefly digress to discuss some other noticeable additions to Gora in 0.3, namely: Modification of the Query interface: The Query interface was amended from Query<K, T> to Query<K, T extends Persistent> to be more precise and explicit for developers. Consequently all implementors and users of the Query interface can only pass object's of Persistent type. Logging improvements for data store mappings: A key aspect of using Gora well is the establishment and accurate definitio…
