Firstly, Hadoop is open-source software. This means that we can alter the source code as we see fit to suit our needs and requirements. 

Secondly, this framework can utilize thousands of hardware nodes. Each node acts as a part of a larger Hadoop cluster as a processing and storage unit. This is crucial in solving large big data queries and problems that are executed on these clusters. 

Furthermore, it enables fast data transfer between the data nodes.

Also, using a node centric architecture also helps with cases of node failure or data corruption on a particular node.
