What Is Hadoop and How Can I Use It?

When I’m playing Bruce Wayne instead of Batman, I’ve been doing some work about the open source distributed computing platform Hadoop, which has been revolutionizing the way massive, complex data is stored and analyzed. I’ve already mentioned how something like Hadoop can have a tremendous effect even in fields such as law enforcement, and some estimates say that in a few years 50% of our data will be stored on Hadoop. But what is it, what does it do, and how would we use it? I’ve recently put out a white paper through CTOlabs explaining the software and its intelligence applications, which provides some possible security related use cases. For anyone interested in learning more, the paper can be found after the break.
