Hadoop, formally called Apache Hadoop, is an Apache Software Foundationproject and open source software platform for scalable, distributed computing. Hadoop can provide fast and reliable analysis of both structured data and unstructured data. Given its capabilities to handle large data sets, it's often associated with the phrase big data.

18.104.22.168 Capacity scheduler
The capacity scheduler was developed by Yahoo.
The capacity scheduler supports several features that are similar to the fair scheduler.
1.Jobs are submitted into queues.
2.Queues are allocated a fraction of the total resource capacity.
3.Free resources are allocated to queues beyond their total capacity.
4.Within a queue a job with a high level of priority has access to the queue's resources.
There is no preemption once a job is running.
22.214.171.124 Fair scheduler
The fair scheduler was developed by Facebook. The goal of the fair scheduler is to provide fast response times for small jobs and QoS for production jobs.
