Leveraging Microsoft’s Big Data offering, we help customers realize the benefits of Big Data on the world’s most powerful data management platform – Microsoft SQL Server. Gain actionable insights into both structured and unstructured data; provide self-service access through familiar tools such as Microsoft Office and SharePoint; and extend your data warehouse solutions with the Windows to Hadoop connector.
We at iNetFrame Technologies use different flavors of Apache Hadoop depending on our customer requirements.
The Apache™ Hadoop® project develops open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing.
The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver high-availability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-available service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to failures.
