Fedora Commons With Apache Hadoop: A Research Study

Mohamed Mohideen Abdul Rasheed, a software developer in Software Systems Development and Research, worked for about six months at the beginning of 2013 on a special project to evaluate Apache Hadoop for use as a backend storage solution both for applications we already use, such as Fedora Commons and DSpace, and for future Research Data services. The outcome of the research is that while Hadoop shows much promise in this area, several issues preclude moving forward with implementation just yet, most notably the lack of a clear disaster recovery plan.

I am pleased to announce that Mohamed Mohideen has published his research findings in an article entitled Fedora Commons With Apache Hadoop: A Research Study in the October 14, 2013 (Issue 22)  edition of the Code4Lib Journal.
