In Hadoop MapReduce, there are several features that are important for the effective functioning of any big data analytics tool:

  • Automated parallelization and automated distribution.
  • Fault tolerance mechanisms which are built into the system. 
  • The functionality of MapReduce is not limited to a particular language and hence it can be termed as language independent. 
  • The programming complexity in a distributed network stays hidden and facilitates abstraction. 
  • Local data processing in enabled.
  • All inter-process communication is enabled.
