Bangalore: The platform namely open source has undergone a profound revolution in recent years as this unique software project has staged itself to be so ample and apt mainly because of its support to challenge the characteristics of similar software from other private vendors like Microsoft.

And now with the year 2013 around the corner, let’s take a look at some of the most successful open source projects of the year 2012.

Apache Hadoop

Used by: Yahoo, Google, Facebook, Amazon, eBay

Whatever may it be, 2012 has been the year of the ‘Hadoops’ and there is no second thoughts on that. This year the tech world saw several customers dying to use the technology. Companies like Hortonworks, Cloudera and MapR made the news, but what caught the headlines was conglomerate IBM’s thoughts in using the Hadoop technology.

Created by Doug Cutting, Apache Hadoop is considered as one of the best in storing the structured, semi-structured and unstructured data. Constructed to be an open source software framework for data-intensive distributed applications, the Apache Hadoop uses a series of nodes to store the data. Named after his son’s toy elephant, Cutting structured a MapReduce facility with a distributed file system to meet the multi processing requirements of his firm, Nutch.
