The Hadoop Service

On This Page

The platform provides a self-service and open-source Apache Hadoop framework that makes it easy, fast, and cost-effective to process and analyze vast amounts of data for operational, analytics, and data-engineering needs. The platform's distributed file system (DFS) is an Hadoop Compatible File System (HCFS). You can run Hadoop commands from any platform command-line interface — such as a web-based shell, a Jupyter notebook, or terminal — as demonstrated, for example, in the Working with Data Containers tutorial and in the getting-started ingestion examples in the platform's Jupyter tutorial notebook.
