IF you havent come across it Hadoop is an open-source software framework for storage and large-scale processing of data-sets on clusters of commodity hardware. Hadoop is an Apache top-level project being built and used by a global community of contributors and users.

All the modules in Hadoop are designed with a fundamental assumption that hardware failures (of individual machines, or racks of machines) are common and thus should be automatically handled in software by the framework

Now, here is a very interesting video – where we explore the relationship between BlueMix, Hadoop and unsurprisingly, Big Data – enjoy!
