Hadoop is an open source and significant emerging technology for solving business problems around large volumes of mostly unstructured data that cannot be analyzed with traditional database tools. The NetApp Open Solution for Hadoop combines the power of the Hadoop framework with flexible storage, professional support, and services of NetApp and its partners to deliver higher Hadoop cluster availability and efficiency. Based on a reference architecture, it focuses on scaling Hadoop from its departmental origins to an enterprise infrastructure with independent compute and storage scaling, faster cluster ingest, and faster job completion under failure conditions.
