About this paper
Hadoop is an open-source software framework for running applications on large clusters of commodity hardware. As a result, it delivers enormous processing power and the ability to handle virtually limitless concurrent tasks and jobs, making it a remarkably low-cost complement to a traditional enterprise data infrastructure. In this white paper, Mark Troester of SAS describes key ways SAS supports Hadoop from within the familiar SAS environment – merging the power of SAS Analytics with the power of Hadoop data storage and processing.
