Software available on BigData@PoliTO laboratory

Each node of the BigData@Polito cluster runs a Cloudera distribution on Linux Ubuntu (14.04.02 LTS). The Cloudera distribution is based on the open source Apache Hadoop framework for Big Data distributed applications. The Apache Hadoop ecosystem includes Apache open source projects for data management like YARN and HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System), governance/integration lile Falcon, Flume and Sqoop, operations like Ambari, Oozie and ZooKeeper, data access like Hive, Pig, Mahout, Storm, Spark. This was only a sublist and new projects can be included in future.
