What is Hadoop?

Hadoop is an open source frame work from Apache Software Foundation for storing & processing large-scale data usually called Big Data which grows exponentially day by day and can’t be processed easily by legacy databases.

Hadoop easily processes large-scale data on clusters of commodity hardware.

Hadoop is created by Doug Cutting, creator of Apache Lucene, text search library. Apache is written in Java.
