Hadoop, an open source framework that enables distributed computing, has changed the way we deal with big data. Parallel processing with this set of tools can improve performance several times over. The question is, can we make it work even faster? What about offloading calculations from a CPU to a graphics processing unit (GPU) designed to perform complex 3D and mathematical tasks? In theory, if the process is optimized for parallel computing, a GPU could perform calculations 50-100 times faster than a CPU.
