Apache™ Hadoop® is an open source software project that enables distributed processing of large structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data sets across clusters of commodity servers. It is designed to scale up from a single server to thousands of machines, with a very high degree of fault tolerance.
IBM's Open Platform (IOP) is a free, open source distribution of Hadoop. It complies with technology standards that IBM and many of our competitors have agreed to, so that our clients will be able to work seamlessly with most open-source offerings.
For clients looking for more capability, IBM offers BigInsights. BigInsights provides both IOP and valuable tools for security, analytics, and system administration.
