Apache Hadoop was initially developed by Yahoo and the project is a combination between the previous Apache Hadoop Core and Apache Hadoop Common repos.

One is Hadoop Common, the so called core that allows all other modules to work, the second is its very own filesystem – HDFS (Hadoop Distributed File System), the third is the Hadoop YARN scheduling framework, and finally there is the Hadoop MapReduce system for supporting parallel computing.
