Hey Everyone. Have you checked the previous article on Best Movies on Data Science and Machine Learning? If not, then please check it.

So, Today we will look over an important topic in Big Data i.e. Components used in Hadoop Ecosystem. First we will define what is Hadoop Ecosystem, then it's components, and a detailed overview of it. 

The Hadoop Ecosystem is a suite of services that work together to solve big data problems. The four core components are MapReduce, YARN, HDFS, & Common. Let's get into detail conversation on this topics. Before that we will list out all the components which are used in Big Data Ecosystem 

Components of Hadoop Ecosystem

1. Hadoop Yarn
2. Hadoop HDFS
3. Mapreduce
4. Pig
5. Hive
6. Apache H Base
7. HUE
8. Zookeper
9. Ambari
10. Sqoop
11. Oozie
12. Flume
13. H Catalog
14. Thrift
15. Drill
16. Mahout
17. Avro
18. Chukwa and More..

• Hadoop Core Components

Starting with 1st component.. 

1. Hadoop Distributed File System:

Features of HDFS

3. Crunch: 

Unique Features of Crunch

- It's a Framework to write, test, and run MapReduce pipelines 

- Crunch Simplifies the complex task like joining and data aggregation 

- It Runs on top of MapReduce and Spark 

4. Mahout: 

Mahout Features Includes:-

- It's a Scalable machine learning library on top of Hadoop and also most widely used library 

- A popular data science tool automatically finds meaningful patterns from big data

- Distributed linear algebra framework

- Cross-platform, Scalable, powerful, and accurate. 

• Hadoop Data Serialization Components 

Avro and Thrift are classified under this category 

1. Avro: 

- Avro is a Data serialization framework 

- It serializes data in compact, fast, binary data format 

- It uses JSON to define types and protocols 

- Also it provides a container file, to store persistent data 

2. Thrift:

Features of Thrift are.. 

- Thrift provides a language agnostic framework 

- Interface definition language and binary communication protocol 

- Its a Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Framework

• Hadoop Data Transfer Components 

Chukwa, Sqoop, and Flume comes under this category. 

1. Sqoop:
- This tool is designed for efficiently transferring bulk data between Hadoop and RDBMS 

- Sqoop Parallelizes data transfer 

- It Allows data imports from external datastores 

- It Uses MapReduce to import and export the data

2. Chukwa: 

- Chukwa is a Data collection system for monitoring large distributed systems 

- It provides scalable and robust toolkit to analyse logs C> huu 

- It is designed for log collection and analysis 

3. Flume: Data collection & aggregation system 

- Flume is a service for streaming event data. It is reliable, scalable, fault-tolerant and customizable 

- It has distributed pipeline architecture 

• Management Components used in Hadoop

1. HCatalog:
