In Pictures: 18 essential Hadoop tools for crunching big data

Making the most of this powerful MapReduce platform means mastering a vibrant ecosystem of quickly evolving code

Hadoop While many refer to the entire constellation of map and reduce tools as Hadoop, there's still one small pile of code at the center known as Hadoop. The Java-based code synchronizes worker nodes in executing a function on data stored locally. Results from these worker nodes are aggregated and reported. The first step is known as "map"; the second, "reduce."

Hadoop offers a thin abstraction over local data storage and synchronization, allowing programmers to concentrate on writing code for analyzing the data. Hadoop handles the rest. The job is split up and scheduled by Hadoop. Errors or failures are expected, and Hadoop is designed to work around faults by individual machines.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
