Hadoop is a framework organizing large clusters of computers around a problem. Because it's especially effective for big data, many well-known companies use Hadoop, including Facebook, Yahoo, Apple, eBay and LinkedIn.Hadoop in Practice collects nearly 100 Hadoop examples and presents them in a problem/solution format. Each technique explores a problem step-by-step, teaching both how to build that specific solution and the thinking that went into its design. As readers work through the tasks, they'll find themselves growing more comfortable with Hadoop and at home in the world of big data.
