1. Description of the service

The purpose of this service is to allow users to enter the field of Big Data technologies in a simple way, through Hadoop, one of the most widespread platforms in this field.

Apache Hadoop is an open source software widely used to store and process large volumes of data in parallel within the Big Data paradigm. The two main components of Apache Hadoop on which all the others are deployed are: a parallel file system (HDFS) where the data to be analyzed is stored and a job manager (YARN) that distributes the applications among the available nodes. Above these two components there are different APIs with which to develop the applications. Currently, the most widespread programming API is Spark, which has been gradually replacing the original MapReduce API thanks to its performance improvements and its simplicity of use.

The service allows you to easily launch jobs using Spark, Hive, Impala, MapReduce, HBase or Kafka.
