+      The Apache&trade; Hadoop&trade; software library is a framework that
+      allows for the distributed processing of large data sets across clusters
+      of computers using a simple programming model. It is designed to scale up
+      from single servers to thousands of machines, each offering local
+      computation and storage. Rather than rely on hardware to deliver
+      high-avaiability, the library itself is designed to detect and handle
+      failures at the application layer, so delivering a highly-availabile
+      service on top of a cluster of computers, each of which may be prone to
+      failures.
