ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the relevance of Hadoop open-source software framework developed by Apache Software Foundation for large unstructured data and how it relates to Microsoft Corp.'s SQL Server relational database server. He discusses the functions of Hadoop using MapReduce technique that separates data discovery and indexing tasks in different parts of servers in the cluster. He explains that Hadoop does not replace SQL Server but it can be used in conjunction to its systems capabilities.
