Reader (121) How to Program MapReduce Jobs in Hadoop with R. La NSA soumet sa base de données Hadoop à la Fondation Apache. Le doux vent de l'été souffle encore sur Hadoop.
Ce framework Java Open Source pour le développement de systèmes de fichiers distribués et de gestion de données en volume a reçu cette semaine un nouvel allié de poids : la NSA (National Security Agency). L'agence de sécurité nationale américaine, dont une des missions clés est de collecter, d'analyser et de surveiller les communications militaires, gouvernementales, commerciales et personnelles des Etats-Unis, a soumis son projet de base de données NoSQL Accumulo à la très populaire fondation Apache. Le projet, aujourd'hui placé dans l'incubateur de la fondation Open Source, doit désormais trouver sa communauté. Démarré en 2008, Accumulo, riche de quelque 200 000 lignes de code (Java essentiellement), est le résultat de trois années de développement initiées par la NSA, explique l'agence sur le site de la fondation. Java development 2.0: Big data analysis with Hadoop MapReduce. When Google launched its image search feature in 2001, it had 250 million indexed images.
Less than a decade later, the search giant has indexed over 10 billion images. Thirty-five hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every minute. Twitter is said to handle, on average, 55 million tweets per day. Earlier this year, its search feature was logging 600 million queries daily. That is what we mean when we talk about big data. Data on such a massive scale was once limited to large corporations, universities, and governments — entities capable of buying hugely expensive supercomputers and the staff to keep them running. One of the enabling technologies of the big data revolution is MapReduce, a programming model and implementation developed by Google for processing massive-scale, distributed data sets.
About Hadoop Apache's Hadoop framework is essentially a mechanism for analyzing huge datasets, which do not necessarily need to be housed in a datastore. Why Europe’s Largest Ad Targeting Platform Uses Hadoop. Richard Hutton, CTO of nugg.ad, authored the following post about how and why his company uses Apache Hadoop. nugg.ad operates Europe’s largest targeting platform.
The company’s core business is to derive targeting recommendations from clicks and surveys. We measure these, store them in log files and later make sense of them all. In 2007 up until mid 2009 we used a classical data warehouse solution. As data volumes increased and performance suffered, we recognized that a new approach was needed. Data Processing Platform Requirements The nugg.ad service is split into two parts. Currently our online platform creates on a daily basis just over a 100 GB of log data per day.
The logging of user interactions with our online platform creates considerable amounts of data. The initial solution for the data processing platform was built on the principles of classical data warehousing. In March 2008 we needed to process and use 30 GB of daily log data per day. Running Hadoop On Ubuntu Linux (Single-Node Cluster) @ Michael G. Noll. In this tutorial I will describe the required steps for setting up a pseudo-distributed, single-node Hadoop cluster backed by the Hadoop Distributed File System, running on Ubuntu Linux.
Hadoop is a framework written in Java for running applications on large clusters of commodity hardware and incorporates features similar to those of the Google File System (GFS) and of the MapReduce computing paradigm. Hadoop’s HDFS is a highly fault-tolerant distributed file system and, like Hadoop in general, designed to be deployed on low-cost hardware. It provides high throughput access to application data and is suitable for applications that have large data sets.
The main goal of this tutorial is to get a simple Hadoop installation up and running so that you can play around with the software and learn more about it. This tutorial has been tested with the following software versions: Running Hadoop On Ubuntu Linux (Multi-Node Cluster) @ Michael G. Noll.

Hadoop’s HDFS is a highly fault-tolerant distributed file system and, like Hadoop in general, designed to be deployed on low-cost hardware. Hadoop Tutorial. Introduction HDFS, the Hadoop Distributed File System, is a distributed file system designed to hold very large amounts of data (terabytes or even petabytes), and provide high-throughput access to this information.
Files are stored in a redundant fashion across multiple machines to ensure their durability to failure and high availability to very parallel applications. This module introduces the design of this distributed file system and instructions on how to operate it. Goals for this Module: Understand the basic design of HDFS and how it relates to basic distributed file system concepts Learn how to set up and use HDFS from the command line Learn how to use HDFS in your applications Outline.
