MRS deploys and hosts Apache Hadoop clusters in the cloud to provide services featuring high availability and enhanced reliability for big data processing and analysis.

Hadoop is a distributed system architecture that consists of HDFS, MapReduce, and Yarn. The following describes the functions of each component:
  • HDFS:

    HDFS provides high-throughput data access and is applicable to the processing of large data sets. MRS cluster data is stored in HDFS.

  • MapReduce:

    As a programming model that simplifies parallel computing, MapReduce gets its name from two key operations: Map and Reduce. Map divides one task into multiple tasks, and Reduce summarizes their processing results and produces the final analysis result. MRS clusters allow users to submit self-developed MapReduce programs, execute the programs, and obtain the results.

  • Yarn:

    As the resource management system of Hadoop, Yarn manages and schedules resources for applications. MRS uses Yarn to schedule and manage cluster resources.
