Reveal Insight from All Types of Data,
from All Types of Systems
Hadoop can handle all types of data from disparate systems: structured, unstructured, log files, pictures, audio files, text – just about anything you can think of, regardless of its native format. Furthermore, you can put it all in your Hadoop cluster with no prior need for a schema. In other words, you don’t need to know how you intend to query your data before you store it; Hadoop lets you decide that later.
By making all your data useable, not just what’s in your databases, Hadoop lets you uncover hidden relationships and reveals answers that have always been just out of reach. You can start making more decisions based on hard data, instead of hunches, and look at complete data sets, not just samples and summaries.
