For the uninitiated, Apache Hadoop is a software framework that supports data-intensive distributed applications under a free license. It enables applications to work with thousands of nodes and petabytes of data. Hadoop was inspired by Google’s MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers. Hadoop is a top-level Apache project being built and used by a global community of contributors, using the Java. Hadoop was created by Doug Cutting, and was originally developed to support distribution for the Nutch search engine project, according to the Wikipedia.
