The Apache Hadoop History is very interesting and Apache hadoop was developed by Doug Cutting. Hadoop framework got its name from a child, at that time the child was just 2 year old. Apache Hadoop is the open source technology.

Behind the picture of the origin of Hadoop framework:
Doug Cutting, developed the hadoop framework. He is an advocate and creator of open source technologies. In 2004, Google published a paper on MapReduce, on top
of that Doug Cutting created a Hadoop framework. At that time Doug Cutting was working with Yahoo!, where he was leading hadoop framework project. After that he
moved to Cloudera. Now, Doug Cutting is a chairman and was elected to board of directors of Apache Software Foundation.



Now, question is How did hadoop got its name and logo?
Doug son’s, who is 2 year old, got a yellow elephant toy as a gift. His son’s was just beginning to talk and called first time H A D O O P to his yellow elephant toy and his son always called to his toy as “Hadoop”.

Cutting said “It’s a word that created by my son and I will save that for the right time”. That’s create the ‘Apache Hadoop History.’
