What is YARN?

The big data Hadoop technology explained.

By James Nunns

YARN is an Apache Hadoop technology and stands for Yet Another Resource Negotiator.

YARN is a large-scale, distributed operating system for big data applications.

YARN is a software rewrite that is capable of decoupling MapReduce’s resource management and scheduling capabilities from the data processing component.
