Hadoop from Apache is an open-source software for organising Big Data.

The Hadoop compute system is the core of Twitter’s data platform, and the company runs multiple large Hadoop clusters that are among the biggest in the world.

“In fact, our Hadoop file systems host more than 300PB of data across tens of thousands of servers,” Agrawal said.

Google Cloud Platform’s data solutions and trusted infrastructure will provide Twitter with the technical flexibility and consistency that its platform requires.

“Architecturally, we will also be able to separate compute and storage for this class of Hadoop workloads, which has a number of long-term scaling and operational benefits,” the post read. (IANS)
