Fedora Linux 20 Set to Integrate Hadoop

One of the key additions set to land in Fedora 20 is a set of Apache Hadoop application packages. Hadoop is an open source collection of projects that has become synonymous with the term "Big Data" in recent years. Fedora Project Leader Robyn Bergeron told ServerWatch that Fedora 20 will include "all" the different Hadoop projects.

"I have looked into this and my recollection is that no other Linux distribution has Apache Hadoop packaged," Bergeron said. "There are lots of packages that you can import into your own distro, but this is all packaged properly into Fedora itself."

The integration of Hadoop into Fedora 20 is all part of the Fedora project's natural evolution to continue to engage with users and bring them the technologies they want to run.
