Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes on Data Engineering and Communications Technologies book series (LNDECT, volume 26)


In this paper big data meaning, big data analytics and big data technologies are discussed. Hadoop ecosystem consisting of many supporting tools for data acquisition, data storage, computation model, query and analysis are also presented. For our experiment in Hadoop environment, Sample data set of temperature analysis has been taken and analyzed the role of combiner in mapper nodes towards reducing network traffic. There is a brief comparison of two leading technologies Hadoop and Spark.
