Deeper Dive into Technology

// Apache Hadoop (pronunciation: /həˈdp/) is an open-source software framework used for distributed storage and processing of big data sets using the MapReduce programming model. It consists of computer clusters built from commodity hardware. All the modules in Hadoop are designed with a fundamental assumption that hardware failures are common occurrences and should be automatically handled by the framework.

// OAuth is an open standard for access delegation, commonly used as a way for Internet users to grant websites or applications access to their information on other websites but without giving them the passwords.[1] This mechanism is used by companies such as Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter to permit the users to share information about their accounts with third party applications or websites.

REDIS Videos

// Redis is an in-memory database open-source software project sponsored by Redis Labs.[4] It is networked, in-memory, and stores keys with optional durability.
