The Big Data solution has won a “Technology of the Year Award” from the site InfoWorld.com.

Jonathan Freeman, InfoWorld journalist, believes that Hadoop is the "only platform suited" to address big data needs of web giants such as Facebook and Yahoo. Mr. Freeman emphasises the flexibility of Hadoop and the advantages of YARN, introduced in version 2.0 (released in October). This new component, which replaces MapReduce, completely changes how tasks are mapped and "separates resource management from data processing and opens the door to additional processing frameworks beyond MapReduce”.
