MRJob – Hadoop made easy.
Big data - you have terabytes of data that you want to crunch through but you don’t want to setup your own hadoop clusters or write Java code to do this. MRJob to the rescue. MRJob is python framework over Hadoop streaming that allows you to write your big data processing programs in any language of your choice. It also supports amazon’s EMR (Elastic Map Reduce) APIs and frees you from the burden of maintaining your own hadoop cluster.
