Hadoop is an open source code program designed to handle the storage of large amounts of data and the running of applications on clusters of ordinary computers. Hadoop facilitates the storage of massive volumes of all kinds of data, enormous processing power and the ability to handle virtually unlimited numbers of simultaneous tasks or jobs.
Hadoop technology was developed as the internet grew and became more extensive in the late 1990s, and as the need to quickly navigate through large volumes of data increased. It is rumoured that Hadoop was the name of a toy elephant belonging to the son of Doug Cutting, who started developing the framework.
Today, Hadoop technology has become commonplace and is used by thousands of businesses for all sorts of purposes involving large amounts of data, semi/unstructured data or fast-moving streams of data.
