Recently interest in big data has increased due to new developments in the field of information technology from the higher network bandwidth, to increases in storage volume, and affordability. One solution to the problem of big data is available from Apache, and is known as Apache Hadoop. In this paper, the authors will introduce some of the disaster recovery techniques, explain what big data is, explore Hadoop, and its related benchmarks. They will leverage these observations to evaluate the feasibility of a dynamic Hadoop clusters running on physical machine as opposed to virtual systems.
