Google Releases C/C++ Map Reduce Framework

Google has announced that it will release MapReduce for C, or MR4C, under an open source license. Originally developed by Skybox Imaging, which Google purchased in 2014, the MR4C framework allows developers to run native C or C++ code on their Hadoop systems.

Google notes, “While many software companies that deal with large datasets have built proprietary systems to execute native code in MapReduce frameworks, MR4C represents a flexible solution in this space for use and development by the open source community.”
