Apache Hadoop has been synonymous with open source big data analytics for over a decade. With the 3.0 major release, Apache Hadoop continues to evolve with the addition of significant new features like HDFS erasure coding, YARN Timeline Service v2, and MapReduce task-level optimization. Together, these new features improve the performance, scalability, and multitenancy capabilities of Hadoop.

Andrew Wang and Daniel Templeton offer an overview of new features and discuss current release management status and community testing efforts dedicated to making Hadoop 3.0 the best Hadoop major release yet.

Diana, there are no features of Hadoop that are specific to Cloudera’s distribution. The Hadoop 3.0 that Cloudera will be shipping is the same Hadoop 3.0 that’s available from Apache. This talk covers the features of the open source Apache Hadoop 3.0.

Will this be specific to the Cloudera distribution of Hadoop or general features of the open source?
