Precognox Switched to Hadoop Based ETL Framework for Job Search Site Development

July 23, 2013

Precognox switched to a new, Hadoop based data collector framework at one of Hungary's premier job search website.

Kaposvar, Hungary (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Precognox announced switching to a new, Hadoop based data collector framework at the Jobmonitor.hu job search website. The system is already live and working, serving one of Hungary’s most relevant sites of its kind.

According to Precognox, this solution enables easy adjustment to constantly growing demand at Jobmonitor with a relative decrease in costs and improvement in scalability.

The advantages of Hadoop-based distributed computing:

Hadoop is an open-source software architecture, developed by Apache, which supports data-intensive distributed applications.

Precognox uses the solution – amongst many – for a relative downscale of their resources at Jobmonitor in the future, as the new framework is flexible and easily scalable horizontally. It also minimizes data loss, since information in the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) is redundantly shared in chunks among the members of the computer clusters involved. This, however, does not mean a decrease in performance as the MapReduce technology enables parallel processing of data on each individual computer.

The distributed ETL solution of Precognox uses HBase NoSQL database, supporting storing of a large amount of rows and columns.

Endre Jofoldi, CEO of Precognox: “Greg Rahn of Cloudera tweeted earlier this year: ‘So what do you do with Hadoop?’ ‘We do what everyone does with Hadoop… we talk about it’ – We are proud to say we managed to take the matter a step further and actually started using it.”
