Hadoop Architecture

  • Tomasz WiktorskiEmail author
Part of the Advanced Information and Knowledge Processing book series (AI&KP)


In this module, you will learn about the basic components of the Hadoop framework, how they work internally, and how they are interconnected. I will primarily focus on the two main components: Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and MapReduce (MR). These two components provide the basic Hadoop functionality that most other elements rely on. I will also shortly cover other components, mostly to provide you with a basis for further independent exploration.
