Hadoop is much more than a highly available, massive data storage engine. One of the main advantages of using Hadoop is that you can combine data storage and processing. Hadoop’s main processing engine is MapReduce, which is currently one of the most popular big-data processing frameworks available. It enables you to seamlessly integrate existing Hadoop data storage into processing, and it provides a unique combination of simplicity and power. Numerous practical problems (ranging from log analysis, to data sorting, to text processing, to pattern-based search, to graph processing, to machine learning, and much more) have been solved using MapReduce. In this paper we will see what is MapReduce and its execution pipeline.
