Wearable Hadoop technology

While Hadoop and MapReduce have been harping on distributed parallel processing on community hardware for long, some Hadoop enthusiasts have taken this too far. Enter Datasayer from Edward J Yoon who has built wearable Hadoop technology. This means every time you walk, jump, blink your eyes or move your hand, you would be using your kinetic energy to run a MapReduce job.

Read below to understand this breathtaking innovation.




  • Hadoop Glass– Inspired by Google glass, this forms the client layer of your Hadoop cluster. Using the eye wear interface, you can trigger a MapReduce job or fire a Pig, Hive or Hama query.
  • Hadoop Watch– Inspired by Samsung Gear (Watch) technology, this forms the name node of your Hadoop cluster and stores the meta data for the data stored in data nodes. Further, the job tracker is also hosted on the watch itself and using MRv1, controls the execution of tasks on different nodes.

  • Hadoop Shoes– This forms the data nodes layer of the cluster. By default the replication factor is 2 for each block resident in data node shoe. Each time you walk or jump, the kinetic energy is converted to CPU cycles and powers the tasks running via tasktracker on each shoe.

  • Hadoop Kinect- Inspired by Microsoft’s Kinect technology, you can configure the shoes a.k.a data nodes of another person in vicinity of 100 meters. The architecture also leverages advanced wireless technology to communicate between nodes. From a scalability perspective, all you need to do is have more people jumping or walking with data node shoes in the vicinity.


If all this sounds too good to be true, well, you guessed it right. This is an All Fools Day prank by Datasayer.

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:
