Apache Hadoop has evolved into the standard platform solution for data storage and analysis. Large, successful companies are increasingly adopting Hadoop to perform powerful analysis of their ever-growing business data.
Two key aspects of Hadoop have driven its rapid adoption by companies hungry for improved insights into the data they collect:
- Hadoop can store data of any type and from any source - inexpensively and at very large scale.
- Hadoop enables the sophisticated analysis of even very large data sets, easily and quickly.
