It works on a Windows, Mac, or Linux workstation and on a Hadoop cluster.

HOW IT WORKS?

Processing is organized by the Hadoop framework. The input data is staged by zipping it in archives of a set size. Then in processing each file is read from the archive, assigned a unique ID, and processed with Tika, which extracts text and metadata. Metadata, text, and the file itself are delivered as processed results.

The primary building blocks of the system are HDFS, Hadoop, Tika, Lucene, Hive.
