EMC India also announced the launch of its Hadoop Innovation Centre in the APJ region, located within EMC’s Centre of Excellence (COE) at Bengaluru. A first of its kind in the industry, the Centre will showcase solutions with Cloudera, Hortonworks and Pivotal. Further it will provide opportunities to ISVs to create and test solutions and to application vendors like Splunk to explore/create vertical stacks. The Center of Excellence in Bangalore was chosen because it gives partners and customers access to the innovation capabilities of some of the best minds, complemented by the world-class infrastructure that supports and drives technology transformation. Engineers at the Bangalore COE are already solving future business problems using next-generation technology, which means their expertise will be an invaluable asset to businesses setting out on their third-platform journey.
 HA D O O P  is an open-source software framework for storing and processing
big data in a distributed fashion on large clusters of commodity hardware. I has been  
developed for organizing and analysing big chunks of data for a business. Suppose
you have a file larger than your system’s storage capacity and you can’t store it.
Hadoop helps in storing bigger files than what could be stored on one particular server.
You can therefore store very, very large files and also more number of large files.
Hadoop has now become a solution for businesses which are in need of faster and
stable processing of large, growing data chunks at lesser cost. The New York Times
uses Hadoop for converting around 4 million files into PDF in a time of less than 36 hours.

The company also announced the launch of a 4-week free, open, online, interactive course on ‘Data Lakes for Big Data MOOC’, under the aegis of EMC Academic Alliances. It highlights the Federation Business Data Lake as an integrated solution that stores and provides access to Big Data for real-time, rapid analytics and predictive modeling. It is targeted at students as well as decision makers or influencer keen to learn and define their organization’s big data strategy.
