A very short while ago, Vinod blogged about some of the significant improvements in Hadoop.Next (a.k.a hadoop-0.23.1).
To recap, the Hortonworks and Yahoo! teams have done a huge amount of work to test, validate and benchmark Hadoop.Next, the next generation of Apache Hadoop that includes HDFS Federation, NextGen MapReduce (a.k.a. YARN) and many other significant features and performance improvements.
Today, I’m very excited to announce that the Apache Hadoop community voted to release hadoop-0.23.1 and it’s now available for all to use!
Please head over to the Apache Hadoop Releases page to download and play with it. Happy Hadoop-ing!
Of course, many thanks to everyone in the community who contributed!
