Why do we develop the HaLoop project? The growing demand for large-scale data mining and data analysis applications has led both industry and academia to design new types of highly scalable data-intensive computing platforms. MapReduce and Dryad are two popular platforms in which the dataflow takes the form of a directed acyclic graph of operators. However, these new platforms do not have built-in support for iterative programs, which arise naturally in many applications including data mining, web ranking, graph processing, model fitting, and so on.
