Hadoop vs MonetDB: What are the differences?
Developers describe Hadoop as "Open-source software for reliable, scalable, distributed computing". The Apache Hadoop software library is a framework that allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local computation and storage. On the other hand, MonetDB is detailed as "Column-store database". MonetDB innovates at all layers of a DBMS, e.g. a storage model based on vertical fragmentation, a modern CPU-tuned query execution architecture, automatic and self-tuning indexes, run-time query optimization, and a modular software architecture.
Hadoop and MonetDB can be primarily classified as "Databases" tools.
Hadoop is an open source tool with 9.26K GitHub stars and 5.78K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Hadoop's open source repository on GitHub.
