Hadoop is Cool – Again!

A 10-year-old Technology Gets a Fresh New Look

The rumors of Hadoop’s demise started almost as soon as the technology started to gain traction. That was 10 years ago. The reality is that the original technologies incubated by Google and Yahoo have spawned one of the largest and most successful open source development communities of all time.

In this webinar, you will learn about 3 Hadoop trends that can impact the way you do data analytics. The Apache Software Foundation released a new major version of Hadoop (3.0) in December of 2017. In addition to the usual bug fixes and incremental fixes, Hadoop 3 includes several major new features that organizations can leverage including support for Docker containers and GPUs together with new ways to store large amounts of data with less redundancy overhead.
