Re: [HTCondor-users] Condor SOAP call help needed

This is an oversimplification, but hopefully it gets the point across.

If you compare the current stable series across both packages, HTCondors primary function is as a "general purpose" cycle scavenging, compute intensive batch scheduler, where throughput is usually measured in compute years.  

Hadoop, in its current stable series, is a more specific batch scheduler whose backbone is around MapReduce and their primary metric of performance would be data throughput.  (Hence: "Big Data") There is an entire ecosystem built around the manipulation and analysis of said data.

That is probably the most notable differences, at a 50K foot view.

Hello everyone, I begin to use HTCondor. But I confuse feel puzzled about the difference between HTCondor and Hadoop.
Can somebody tell me their different functions ?
Thank you very much.
