YARN replaces what used to be plain MapReduce, in order to provide an
API for, and to support development of applications that wish to use a
different distributed processing method than just MR, on top of HDFS.

YARN (called Apache Hadoop YARN presently) is part of Apache Hadoop.
YARN is not "Hadoop".
