Subject [jira] Commented: (HAMA-194) Update the project description of Hama
Date Thu, 17 Sep 2009 08:17:58 GMT


Hyunsik Choi commented on HAMA-194:

I wrote a draft of new introduction to Hama. How about this?
Hama (means a hippopotamus in Korean) is a distributed scientific package on Hadoop for massive
matrix and graph data. It is currently in incubation with Apache. The main goal of Hama is
to provide computational tools for data-intensive scientific and industrial areas. It consists
of two packages, which are the matrix package and the graph package.

The matrix package (means a hippopotamus in Korean) is a library of matrix operations on a
Map/Reduce framework for a large-scale numerical analysis and data mining, that need the intensive
computation power of matrix inversion, e.g., linear regression, PCA, SVM and etc. It will
be useful for many scientific applications, e.g., physics computations, linear algebra, computational
fluid dynamics,        statistics, graphic rendering and many more.

The graph package, called Angrapa, is an large-scale graph data management framework for analytical
processing. It is still an ongoing project. It will employ massive parallelism on Hadoop.
It aims to achieve the scalability for tera bytes or peta bytes graph data. Angrapa will be
used in a variety of scientific and industrial areas, such as data mining, machine learning,
information retrieval, bioinformatics, and social networks, required to process large-scale
graph data.

> Soon, the graph package (i.e., hamburg) will be integrated to hama projects. So, the
project description of Hama are needed to be updated.
