The Abstraction of Apache Hadoop

February 21, 2013

Big Data, Data Grid

I think Apache Hadoop is more or less synonymous with Big Data, but in what context?

Is it Apache Hadoop as in the framework?
Is it Apache Hadoop as in the platform?

I think it is Apache Hadoop as in the ecosystem. However, the ecosystem is built on the platform and the platform is built on the framework.

The purpose of this presentation is to show that Apache Hadoop, as in the framework, can be abstracted to the services required for building a Big Data platform, and that alternative implementations of these services are in fact complimentary if not alternative platforms for Big Data.
