Unit Research & Teaching
End Users Research Staff, Research PG Students, Taught PG Students, UG Students
Software Hadoop
Hardware The cluster is administered by two dedicated machines borrowed from the Beowulf cluster. The rest of the Hadoop cluster runs on all the other machines in the Beowulf cluster - which do other jobs at the same time as running Hadoop - and a collection of spare desktops which are dedicated to the Hadoop cluster temporarily until allocated to desktop duties elsewhere.

Dependencies

Redundancy Hadoop is designed to cope with node failure. Both the filesystem and the job processing can recover cleanly and automatically from the failure of a node. However there are two exceptions: the "namenode" is a single point of failure. The namenode's metadata is mirrored in real time to another node (the "secondary namenode") by Hadoop.
