In many fields of IT, there are always stand-out technologies. This is definitely the case in the Big Data space, where Hadoop is leading the way. However, without the right technology to underpin it, distributed Hadoop storage and processing environments can become complex to deploy and manage, and expensive to license. Ubuntu is the ideal foundation for Hadoop clusters because it is based on open industry standards, optimised for the cloud, and able to scale with no increments in licensing costs. In this white paper, we explain exactly why Ubuntu is becoming the dominant platform for Hadoop.
