Chapter 22. Installing Apache Falcon

Apache Falcon provides a framework for simplifying the development of data management applications in Apache Hadoop. Falcon enables users to automate the movement and processing of data sets. Instead of hard-coding complex data set and pipeline processing capabilities, Hadoop applications can now rely on the Apache Falcon framework for these functions.


Falcon works with Oozie jobs, Pig scripts, and Hive queries. We recommend that at a minimum you have Oozie and Pig installed to successfully use Falcon for data governance.
