What is Hadoop?

Hadoop is an open source framework for writing and running distributed applications that process large amounts of data.

The Hadoop platform was designed to solve problems where you have a lot of data.

Hadoop is designed to run on a large number of machines that don’t share any memory or disks. That means you can buy a whole bunch of commodity servers, slap them in a rack, and run the Hadoop software on each one.
