When one technology ascends, another usually finds itself falling out of favor. Such has been the case, it seems, for Hadoop, which has dropped from its apparent level of importance over the past 10 years as cloud computing becomes increasingly available and powerful, even as the amount of data it handles grows exponentially.

With Hadoop, big data can be stored in a distributed environment, allowing for parallel processing. It can be stored in blocks of specified sizes, focusing on horizontal scaling instead of vertical scaling. First released by Yahoo in 2008 to the Apache Software Foundation, the framework is valuable for search, log processing, and video and image analysis, and part of its value comes from the fact that Hadoop is low cost, scalable and flexible.
