While it doesn't produce the kind of instant name recognition that some other software platforms do, you've probably already used Hadoop many times. Hadoop is a free, open-source software framework, designed to work on clusters of computers, that can mine huge sets of data very quickly. It was inspired by components in Google's search platform, particularly MapReduce, and is best known for powering fast, distributed searches at sites including Yahoo! and Facebook. But Hadoop's transition from powering search tools at web sites to many other types of applications is already well underway.
