The new generation of Big Data tools largely focus on improving support for real-time (or near-time) computation and interactive applications by reducing the latency involved in processing jobs. If you look at Storm, Spark, Tez, and other newer tools, you will frequently encounter the term “DAG” or Directed Acyclic Graph. This article will explain why traditional MapReduce is subject to undesirable latencies, what a DAG is, and why these new systems use this approach.
Hadoop has begun a slow and inexorable move from prototypes and experimental projects to core enterprise data management. As the ecosystem of Hadoop projects has matured, new capabilities have filtered into Hadoop to grant it enterprise-ready status.
