Third-Party Applications

Third-Party Applications

Big Data Management connects to Hadoop clusters that are distributed by third-parties. Hadoop is an open-source software framework that enables distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of machines. You might also need to use third-party software clients to set up and manage your Hadoop cluster.
Big Data Management can connect to Hadoop as a data source and push job processing to the Hadoop cluster. It can also connect to HDFS, which enables high performance access to files across the cluster. It can connect to Hive, which is a data warehouse that connects to HDFS and uses SQL-like queries to run MapReduce jobs on Hadoop, or YARN, which can manage Hadoop clusters more efficiently. It can also connect to NoSQL databases such as HBase, which is a database comprising key-value pairs on Hadoop that performs operations in real-time.
